 I am not a big fan of the 'meta_key' parameter in our other query methods;
 I think it's a legacy param from before we had `meta_query`, etc. I agree
 that it would be nice to add the ability to sort by the results of a meta
 query, but I wonder if we could get away with only adding named-key
 support, as introduced in WP 4.2 or 4.3 (I forget which):

 $terms = get_terms( 'my_tax', array(
     'meta_query' => array(
         'mq_clause_1' => array( ... ),
         'mq_clause_2' => array( ... ),
         'relation' => 'OR',
     'orderby' => 'mq_clause_1',
 ) );

 'meta_key' ends up getting translated to this anyway. Is this too opaque a
