It would be useful to be able to show custom field values in the issues overview as an extra column.

E.g. I have a custom field 'Points' in my issue trackers. In the filtered table on the Issues page, I'd like to view the values of that field and be able to sort on those values.

I found that changing the method 'columns' in the Query class like this:

  def columns
    if has_default_columns?
      available_columns.select {|c| Setting.issue_list_default_columns.include?(c.name.to_s) || c.instance_of?(QueryCustomFieldColumn) }
      # preserve the column_names order
      column_names.collect {|name| available_columns.find {|col| col.name == name}}.compact

will make custom fields be shown on the main issue table. However, there is no way to select custom fields, you just get all of them. Also, custom fields are not sortable by definition (hard coded in QueryCustomFieldColumn class)
