BeOS's Tracker file manager had a simple method for sorting on
secondary columns. Clicking on one column header would sort files by
that column. Shift+clicking on another column would then perform a
secondary sort on that column. I don't remember if it supported
further nesting, but combined with its ability to display file
attributes as columns, it made organizing collections of files such as
mp3s and emails, very nice. The primary sort column was visually
indicated by a solid line under the column name, and the secondary
sort column had a dashed underline.
