#2973: Allow sorting of attendees by last name

 The Attendees page doesn't allow you to sort by last name, making marking
 attendance difficult if registration is ordered by last name and recorded
 on paper lists at the event.

 Further info:

 Under Tickets > Attendees, there is a Title field for attendee name, but
 this only sorts on first name. When WordCamp registration is done manually
 on paper, this is frequently done by last name. This allows for quicker
 registration than digital methods in some circumstances, and also removes
 the need to have laptops, mobile logins etc set up for volunteers doing
 the registration.

 The problem occurs when you take that paper home after the event and go to
 mark the attendees as actually attended under Tickets > Attendees. There
 is no way to sort by last name, when the paper forms are sorted by last

 A great new feature would be to make it possible to add Last Name to the
 Tickets > Attendees page (in Screen Options), and make it a column that
 can be sortable. The data is already there for each attendee, see this

 Cred to Joel Williams for originally writing up this feature request.
