you want a non-destructive sort.  i want a non-destructive sort.  last
week someone was wanting to add a non-destructive sort with mapping.
every new user screws up assuming that [].sort is non-destructive.
even norvig lists it as the big ugly wart in python (well, maybe not
in those words).

you'd think that someone would add non-destructive sort to python,
wouldn't you?

funny old world, eh?
