While we're hacking on [].sort(), how horrible would it be if we
modified it to return self instead of None?  I don't mind the
sort-in-place behavior, but it's just so inconvenient that it doesn't
return anything useful.  I know it would be better if it returned a new
list, but practicality beats purity. <wink>
