Bug Description

When multiple scopes add results to the same lens, the results from scope2 are displayed after the results from scope1. Having a way to sort them globally would provide a better experience.

Related branches

The branch contains a Python example in examples/merge-strategy.py. The example fails, however, because of this bug in pygobject https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=667244
