bug#23846: 24.5; Sort package list by column

This is a feature request concerning the package list one can obtain
with M-x package-list-packages or M-x package-list-packages-no-fetch.

It would be good to sort packages by column, for example according to
package name (first column) or according to status (third column),
depending on where the point is.

At the moment you can actually accomplish that by pressing M-: and
running something like: (tabulated-list--sort-by-column-name "Status")

It would be more intuitive instead to just press key "s" (for "sort"),
which is undefined now. If I remember correctly something similar is
implemented in ERC, one of emacs IRC clients, for sorting IRC channels.

Is that a good idea? What do you think?
