LIGHTROOM: Show Photos as a Carousel

Personally I like browsing through my photos. However the sort order of displaying photos is quite limited. In Lightroom's library module I can choose a 1-dimensional sort order, say with respect to either the recording time or the file name or the evaluation stars 0-5.

My idea is to display photos like a CAROUSEL:
Imagine a photo wall displayed in a grid format where I am to specify
a) the current, overall set of photos used (e.g. all photos of 2013), and
b) the horizontical order: I imagine that, for example, each row represents a different photo folder (or, alternatively, a certain set of smart collections or Lr's staples within a folder or ...), and
c) the vertically order: Within a horizontal row my photos should be sorted, say, with respect to evaluation stars 5 down to stars 0 (or, alternatively, with respect to recording time or ...).
Consequently then I am able to browse through my photo collection in a convenient, much more generalized manner. Especially with a touch screen monitor, in my opinion, this would be very comfortable: I could easily move across the horizontal rows and vertical columns using my fingers. This is much more than a presentation because I can influence which photos I am going to get displayed next.

Kind regards, WernerJL.
