Improve handling of kobo Date Added during sync
When using calibre to add books and synchronize metadata to a kobo device like Kobo Aura or Kobo Aura HD, it would be helpful if there was an option to map a calibre field such as Date or Published to the Kobo Date Added field. This would allow for better sorting of the items on the Kobo, so that sorting by Date Added would display the most recent books added first.
While this kind of works today if the books are added in small batches, this does not work if books are added in large batches as they will all have essentially the same Date Added. Additionally, since the Date fields in Calibre can be edited, this would allow for the Date Added field in Kobo to be modifiable by a user.
I suspect this should be a fairly simple change as it would just be a matter of adding the GUI and preference to set up the mapping and option (is this feature enabled, which Calibre field is used to map to the kobo field) , and then just updating some SQL when modifying the kobo SQLLite database.
