The suggested patch does not actually point to any discussion or rationale
for why this change was made; it just contains a pointer to this thread
(which is not very useful). So, while I hate to open a can of worms: but

Without the cmp argument, what's the concise way to spell something like
"sort a list of floats by absolute value"? It'd be nice to have a stock
example to help users rewrite their code to work with 3.0.
