I'm not the person who objected on non-English speaking grounds, and I'm
-0 because I don't like using grammatical tense as the differentiator;
as I said, I'd expect sorted() to be a predicate.  If we're doing this
(and it seems we are), I still prefer copysort() for clarity.  But I'm
not objecting to sorted().
