Allow sorting on object graph public properties


It would be helpful if there were a simple way to sort objects deeper in the object graph via their public properties.
An Example Scenario:
Parent object has children objects with property of Firstname
The ability to specify an orderby (or alternative means) to sort by Parent.Child.Firstname (where Firstname is a public property of Child object)

This is an excellent idea, but there are some snags possible. The bindings to the methods will, by necessity, be based on the declared return types of the properties involved. This may affect what end-result property is called.

This would be a great feature to have, are there any plans to add this in the future?

I made some changes to the code to support this requirement and it works for me. You can get it at Marc, can you take a look at this?
