      Description

      Right now, the search returns results ordered by score and then seemingly arbitrarily. It would be useful for a number of cases if it were possible to specify the field to sort on.

      The current use case I have in mind is the various browse pages we have on https://beta.musicbrainz.org/browse and https://beta.musicbrainz.org/cdstub/browse
      These are really just a search for everything of a specific type, ordered by a particular field and if the search let us sort things, we could simply replace the code for that with a call to the search. It would also open up the possibility of combining the search and browse pages into a single interface for browsing, searching and filtering the database.

      Support in the search is also needed in order to fully implement MBS-5636.
