[Tshwanelex-l] Sort configuration: how to handle digraphs and trigraphs?

Dear fellow lexicographers,

I really hope someone can help me configure the sorting system I
need for my (Khoesan) language.

I have been able to add the click symbols to the list used for
the 'first pass' - but that part was easy.  The problem is that I
need to include digraphs, such as th and ts, plus a trigraph kx'
at this stage.

I think I also need these for a 'second pass' - before the vowels
are looked at?- because each click may be expanded by a range of
features typically represented by simple or compound symbols such
as h, g, n, x, ' and kx'.

Is there a way to cheat this?   Or is there some way that I can
set up my own lists for the various passes to operate on?

Thanks very much!
