Jason, such a good idea and so easy to add too!  This will be in
1.0b7.  I've done a bit of work on the gateway code so it should be
more stable as well.

Good suggestions.  I'm not sure how easy or hard it would be to
reverse the sort order when sorting by date, but I agree that it's
probably more useful to order it from most recent to oldest.

Searching: its a big thing on my list, but probably not for 1.0.
Editing is an interesting idea and I've put that on the TODO list.
