If the discussion is wrapped up, I'm ready to commit the patch:



. Adds keyword arguments:  cmp, key, reverse.
. Stable for any combination of arguments (including reverse).
. If key is not specified, then no wrapper is applied and nothing
  is changed (performance is unchanged).
. If cmp and key are specified, the wrapper is removed and the
  original key is passed to the cmp function (the wrapper is not
  visible to the user).
. Has unittests and docs.  Passes the full test suite and repeated
  runs show stable refcounts.
