I've just realised what I really want - I want "View-Sort Albums-By
Date" to do *exactly* that.  I.e. I want the view option to simply
change the sort order of my albums in the 'normal' view of my albums.
Preserve all the hierarchy I have carefully created by sorting each level
within that hiearchy by date.  This is surely quite simple in that
it's just a switch of the sort order in the normal 'View-Sort
Albums-By Folder' view, it doesn't require the extra complexity
currently needed for the different view options.

The only issue is that 'date' could mean either the
creation/modification date of the album/directory or it could mean the
date in the album properties.  Maybe one could be allowed to choose either.

My ideal would be to allow ordering albums by the date specified in the
album properties.
