Instead of a dialog that does this, maybe something simple like sort
by the column when you click on the header.  When you click on another
column header, the first one you selected becomes the secondary sort. 
So you could come up with any sort you like, just by clicking on the
column headers you like in reverse order of sort priority.  No UI
changes and lots of flexibility.

A right click on column headers to revert to default sort might be nice too.
