[Python-Dev] Sort() returning sorted list

It would be nice to have, at times, sort() return the sorted list,
but doing so could lead people to believe that returns a sorted copy of
the list.  What about if we could do "list.sort(returnAfterSorting = 1)"
or something?  It'd be nice if it were short and sweet, but it should
be clear what it's doing too...
