how to Identify the multi-sort order?

Multi-sort using shift-click works great! User however needs to see some indicatin of the sort column order - maybe a little number "1", "2", "3" etc. next to the sort up/down arrow. Anyone know how to achieve this? thx in advance.

    Currently the only way DataTables shows this is by grading the background colour of the sorting columns. Less important columns get a lighter background.

    However, having a number is a good idea. Probably not something for the core (unless there are a lot of other votes for this feature - to all: if you are reading this add a comment below if you want to vote for it!), but ideal for a plug-in I think.

    The way I would probably do it myself is to attach a listener to the order event and update the DOM in the header with the information required on each order event.
