Description:
Class makes multicolumn sorting of associative arrays in format provided for example by mysql_fetch_assoc.
Column names to be used when sorting can be specified as well the sorting direction for each column.
Optional external to the class compare functions can be specified for each column.
Look below for requirements concerning external compare functions.
If external compare functions are not supplied, the internal _compare method is used.
Dates are sorted correctly using the internal compare if they comply with GNU date syntax

Example usage: see example.php

  "compareFunc" element is optional - NULL by default and by default the class internal compare is used.
  If External compare function is supplied it must conform to the following requirements:
    ~ Accept two T_STRING parameters and return:
        0  - if parameters are equal
        1  - if first parameter is greater than second
        -1 - if second parameter is greater than first
