Conditional sort

I would love to keep the contents of some directories sorted in a different order than the default. For example, according to time instead of alphabetically.

Some gui file managers such as total commander support settings per tab. This is of course not possible with mc as there are no tabs.

But, to implement this in mc, we can have conditional sorting (and maybe other view settings etc) according to the directory.

Can this be implemented, or is there an easy way to achieve the same.

I think you didn't understand my request. I know that we can change the sort order through menu -> sort order. This of course changes the sort order for that particular pane, no matter which directory we are in.

I would like to have an option to do "Conditional Sorting" based on the directory we are in. So that we go to a particular directory and instead of manually changing the sort order, mc sorts the contents automatically according to a matching condition specified by the user.
