Feature suggestion: sort by tag (more columns)

I would love to be able to sort by tags.

This may not be useful to everyone, but I use numerical, color-coded tags to indicate my reading and note-taking/making progress for each new source added to Zotero:

3 - unread
2 - read, annotated (notes *taken*)
1 - read, annotated, written up (notes *made*)
0 - fundamental source

I color coded each tag so I can see those colors in the Zotero main window (like the first two references here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zotero#/media/File:Zotero-5-macOS-Screenshot@2x.png)

Unless I'm missing something, though, you can't sort sources alphanumerically by tag (as the secondary sort condition, for example).

If it's not difficult to do add, this would be a great feature for those of us who use this kind of alphanumeric system.

In other words, I'd love to search a term in a collection and then sort my sources by how much reading and writing I've done rather than, say, "Date Added," which is my current proxy.
