How to Search/Filter by Aperture setting?

Is there a way to either filter images in a contact sheet, or do a search for images by what aperture was used? I don't see any obvious way to do this?

You could create a custom sort that would use the {aperture} variable.  This would order them by their decimal aperture value.
