Terry, I'm unhappy with the changes to the sorting how-to.  IMO, it was a not a net win (transforming code that already ran fine in something doctest would swallow).  The code snippets now have the visual clutter of the ">>>" and "..." PS1 and PS2 prompts and they can no longer be readily cut and pasted into the interpreter so that people can experiment with them.
