I wrote about it earlier today. The proper way to do it is through a
generator. This way you can sort a sequence and use just a small part
of it -- maybe just the top few items or so. I proposed the name
xsorted() to keep company with xrange(), but that's being deprecated,
so I really don't know if it's worth it at this point.
