Thanks for the sample. It work great, except that it also runs when
the header character doesn't match any item in the list:

=======
import bisect

connected = []
connected.append("_test")
connected.append("-test")
connected.append("0test")
connected.append("1test")
connected.append("Aa")
connected.append("Bb")
connected.append("Cc")

def rotated_sort(data, startch):
	data = sorted(data)
	pos = bisect.bisect_left(data, startch)
	return data[pos:] + data[:pos]

for ch in "_-0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWYZ":
	print ch, rotated_sort(connected, ch)
=======
C:\>test.py
_ ['_test', '-test', '0test', '1test', 'Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc']
- ['-test', '0test', '1test', 'Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test']
0 ['0test', '1test', 'Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test', '-test']
1 ['1test', 'Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test', '-test', '0test']
2 ['Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test', '-test', '0test', '1test']
3 ['Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test', '-test', '0test', '1test']
4 ['Aa', 'Bb', 'Cc', '_test', '-test', '0test', '1test']
=======

Should I add an "if" block in the "for ch in"?
