Sort by custom field

I think it would be cool to have a "custom field" where you can put a number, so you can sort books that you want in order, for example the Foundation ones, instead of naming them "Foundation 1", "Foundation 2: Empire", etc, you can have the real titles and then assign 1, 2, 3 to the custom field so you can sort them as you want.

Thank you for the GREAT program.

The 0.7 release of calibre will have support for creating user defined fields.

Until 0.7 is released I use the series column to do most of this.
