Support multilevel, multidirection sorting of search results

Description

It is currently possible to sort search results on multiple fields, but when sorting is performed in memory (for sets of 1,000,000 items or less) only a single sort direction is possible – all fields are are either ascending or descending.

We need to extend in-memory sorting to allow for multiple directions. It should also be possible to embed the direction of the sort in the sort field string if desired. A way to do this would be to allow specification of direction after the field, separated by a colon. Ex:

ca_objects:idno:desc;ca_objects.preferred_labels.name:asc
