Question Sorting Multidimensional Arrays in PHP

I have a question that is giving me a headache

Lets say we have an array, $a, that is multi dimensioned

For example:

$a[0]['a'] = 5;
$a[0]['clicks'] = 15;
$a[0]['time'] = 5:30;

$a[1]['a'] = 1;
$a[1]['clicks'] = 10;
$a[1]['time'] = 5:30;

$a[2]['a'] = 7;
$a[2]['clicks'] = 11;
$a[2]['time'] = 7:30;

Is it possible to sort these by 'clicks' while the actual rows stay intact?

Basically, after sorted, it would be like so:

$a[0]['a'] = 1;
$a[0]['clicks'] = 10;
$a[0]['time'] = 5:30;

$a[1]['a'] = 7;
$a[1]['clicks'] = 11;
$a[1]['time'] = 7:30;

$a[2]['a'] = 2;
$a[2]['clicks'] = 15;
$a[2]['time'] = 5:30;

I have been fooling around with array_multisort, but it cant seem to be able to figure out how to use it in such a sitatuion.

Any Ideas? [I could do it in a very cumbersome method, but I was just wondering if you can do it using PHP's in built methods]
