Do you think that simple solution could have a chance to be added to stdlib somehow (with the possibility of speeding it up in the future)?
You could submit a doc patch to add an explanation of this technique to the list.sort function.
Is the github repo ready? If so, I will do.
I doubt it's worth a builtin for a 2-line function.
Not this 2-line function alone indeed. As my note about speeding it up in the future goes, I thought about an interface which allows people to do easy multisort BUT with the possibility of further optimization by the CPython or other Python implementations.
