is a list-panel, then
sorted-object-sort-by also calls sort-object-items-by to sort the items with the new sort type. For your own subclasses of sorted-object which are not subclasses of list-panel, if you need this behavior define an

:after methods on subclasses of list-panel to perform other tasks each time the items are sorted.
