Once a user has imported images via the 'Import dialog box' and returned to Library module, give the ability to change default 'Sort' order; eg. from 'Added order' to 'Capture time'

I too, would like the import dialog to have "sticky" default sort order.  I personally prefer to have the default sort order "capture time", but have to reset it every single solitary time!

Dear Adobe,

I would also find it very useful if we had an option to change the default sorting (perhaps upon Import or in the Setting dialog), since now i have to go in each folder (and as most people that use LR i have quite a few) and change the sorting to "Capture Time" manually for each and every one of them.
