wow, that's great.
you read a comment in the code, and you test it, to only find that it
is indeed true,
sounds ok, but feels great. :)

Just experimenting a bit, I swaped the lines _siftdown and _siftup and something
strange happened the number of comparisions in both the versions remained same.
I'm attaching the files.

do you have any idea why this happened?
