Is this sort of thing going to be possible?

I *think* you can.

o Create your character list in a spreadsheet row or column.
o Select the range.
o Go to Tools | Options... | LibreOffice Calc | Sort Lists. Note that "Copy list from" is already populated.
o Click Copy to create the new list.

When sorting, on the Options tab of the Sort dialogue, click "Custom sort order" and select your new sort order from the drop-down menu.

I trust this helps.
