It's not that we're ignoring requests for features :) We take everyone's feedback seriously---it's our only way of knowing what our users want! This request (and a few others) are particularly tricky because we use multiple sources. That means, these sources has to support the ability to sort by date, search within a date range, etc. To keep adding certain types of features sometimes means we can't provide a diversity of results (or more accurate results). We wouldn't do that just to half-support sort-by-date.

We're actively working toward adding more date support and we're constantly monitoring our sources to allow for more advanced search functions.
