Extending Tablesort

If you require a sort operation that does not exist in the sorts directory, you can add your own.

Tablesort.extend('name', function(item) {

  // Regular expression to test against.
  // `item` is a table value to evaluate.
  return /foo/.test(item);
}, function(a, b) {

  // Custom sort functionality goes here.
  // e.g var n = (a > b) ? -1 : 1;
  return n;

If you've made an extend function that others would benifit from pull requests are gladly accepted!
