Agreed.

And if I were sorting only on a date column, I'd probably prefer as granular a sort as possible, minimizing 'randomness' of the result.

That's what I like about your implementation -- I can have my cake and eat it too!

If I want a date sorted to the second, I just display it so. (Actually what you've implemented is even better, I determine the sort granularity with the display format tweak, but I can still refine the appearance by adjusting the display column width -- so I can sort to the second while displaying only the day).

If I want a different date less granular to facilitate nested sorts I display (format tweak) it accordingly.

If I'm willing to take the hit of restarting calibre, I can even switch back and forth! (Though I can't really imagine wanting to do that).

I like it!
