A couple of sorting-related issues, under a different subject header
so as not to get confused with the issues in the previous one.

1.

It looks like "priority" means both priority /letter/ and
priority /as calculated/.  I got confused by this at first
when I wanted to sort using priority-down to mean sorting by
letter.

Is there a way to sort by priority-letter-down in the
agenda?

This might create an order that is more stable over time,
thus allowing you to know where to look for an item.

2.

Is it possible to allow a user-definable sorting strategy
member for the agenda?  i.e. user-definable-down.

This is correct, and indeed not clearly distinguished
in the manual.  Calculated means, there are additions to
the priority depending on how close an entry is to its deadline
or scheduled date.

Not currently, no.

It is now, I just pushed this change.

Search for the variabel org-agenda-cmp-user-defined, and then
use user-defined-up and user-defined-down in your sorting strategy.
