Better support for song numbers?

It is already available, including the possibility to sort by Custom / Custom2.
Useful improvements would be:
- allowing to rename the (non group) user fields, like it is the case for the user defined group
- adding more user defined fields and/or user defined groups
- adding a way to allow fast and convenient switching between several title format / caption format settings
Thus it would improve MSP also for users (like me) that do not number their songs. They could use the additional fields flexibly for other purposes.

Good point about additional sorting options. I never noticed those as I'm usually working in collections, sorting scores by instrument (trombone, accordion, choir) and for some reason sorting options are limited there. Until now I had no reason to assume it's different in songs. Edit: Although, now I'm thinking about it, it would probably use the same alphabetic system and thus also miss granularity for numbers.

The main problem would be populating those fields though - and renaming all existing songs by removing the numbers. At that point I would probably start to dig out forum entries about the DB location and what's needed to manipulate that directly...
