Sort Groups by Summary Values

When the Data Grid displays group summaries, you can right-click a column header in a group panel and select "Sort by Summary". By doing so, you can sort groups by any group summary item, associated with any Data Grid column. When sorting by summaries is active, a dash is painted above the regular ascending/descending sort indicator in column headers.
