I am looking for a way to sort by two fields.  For example, I want to sort by Status (1 New, 2 Reduced,3  Active) so that all New listings are together, all Active are together etc.  Then within each of those I want it to sort by Price.

sort of like using sort_order=17,123,forward and then sort_order=5,123,reverse  where lfield17 is Status and it sorts by ascending numbers and then within that each Status it sorts via lfield5 (Price) in descending order.
