--- Comment #14 from Dan Garry <> ---
Adding in a feature to sort by date or alphabetically by title will, for the
reasons explained above, result in degraded performance for the vast majority
of users. It's for this reason that search engines like Google don't allow you
to sort by date or alphabetically by title; it degrades the quality of the
service. I'm WONTFIXing this bug accordingly, as I cannot justify adding
features to CirrusSearch that degrade the experience for the vast majority of
its users.

That said, there may be a use case in here that does make sense, namely the
ability to discard results from the search that have not been edited "recently"
(for some definition of "recently"). It's possible to do that in such a way
that the scoring algorithm isn't totally ignored, and therefore may not degrade
user performance. See bug 62879.
