Thank you for your response.

I was able to customize Gnus to display threads sorted by number, and
then in reverse order by date, with the following addition to my
.gnus.el file:

> ; Sort threads first by number, and then in reverse order by date

Apparently, the argument "REVERSE" doesn't work; instead, one needs to
specify "not" followed by the sorting option; e.g., "not
gnus-thread-sort-by-date" instead of "gnus-thread-sort-by-date &optional
REVERSE".
