Windows 7: How to customize the Arrange By options for Libraries?

How to customize the Arrange By options for Libraries?

Customizeing the Icon View and Layout of items that appear in either Libraries or normal folders is easy, but what I'd like to do is find a way to customize the "Arrange By" drop-down menu of Libraries. Take, for example, the following screenshots:

In the Music Library, the "Arrange By" drop-down menu provides "Folder", "Album", "Artist", "Song", "Genre", "Rating" and "Clear Changes" options.

In the Videos Library, the "Arrange By" drop-down menu provides "Folder", "Year", "Type", "Length", "Name" and "Clear Changes" options.

I've recently started using the "abcAVI Tag Editor" (SevenForums Free Software List) to tag my video files with "Title", "Genre", "Director" and "Comments" and others.

I was wondering if it was possible to customize the "Arrange By" dropdown menu of the Videos Library to include maybe the "Genre" and "Title" options, so that I can organize my video library using options other than the default "Folder", "Year", "Type", "Length" or "Name"?
