Single most useful dynamic/interactive capability in Mathematica?

Q.   What would be _the_ single _most useful_ dynamic or interactive
      capability that might be added to Mathematica?

A.   The ability to sort an already completed and displayed table on
      any column, simply by clicking on the top of that column, as one
      can do on the columns of Finder windows in List view in the Mac.

      Refinement:  Ability to toggle the associated sort order for that 
      column (sorting the entire table, of course) by repeatedly clicking
      at the top of that column.

      Alternative:  An option ("InteractiveSort->False/True") that could 
      be added to the Table (or TableForm) command that would 
      implement this capability for a given table with no further

[Apologies if this or something equivalent to it exists and I've missed 
it; I did make a quick scan through the lists of new features and the 
Interactive/Manipulate descriptions on the Wolfram web pages.]
