In both Question/Answer Searches, and Answers to Question, there is sort metrics (i.e., Active, Oldest, Votes)

I realise that the URL is appended with the sort order when clicking on the various options (Helpful for browser search options, for example), but not so much for a default preference when just using the SE UI.

Though I couldn't find any previous questions about this (surprising, but am probably wrong), has any consideration been put into making this an option in each user's preferences?
