The comparator approach sounds more suited to me as well... sorting 
should probably not be done in memory here, and it might make sense to 
generate some indexes to allow quick filtering within that collection or 
graph subset or so.

Has anyone done anything similar yet? That requirement seems to be the 
only thing preventing me to give a Neo4j a go (vs. for example jackrabbit).

Please correct me if anything doesnt make sense!
