Currently, many tables can be sorted by a given column by clicking on the column title. The sort should also be invertible -- that is, if the column is sorted alphabetically, clicking on the column title again should sort alphabetically, but backwards from z.

James, are you sure that's not currently possible?  I'm pretty sure that's how I implemented it..

Hi Matt, 

It doesn't seem to work for eg. the Editor's Submissions in Review queue, although it does work for the Author's Active queue. The actions on clicking the headers seems to be different in each case though -- for the former, there's a Javascript action (javascript:sortSearch('title','1')); for the latter, there's a URL (http://git/ojs/index.php/citation/author/index?sort=title&sortDirection=2).

Superseded by grids.
