No "sort" functions here...

  >>> lst=[3,1,4,1,5,9,2,6,5]
  >>> getattr(__builtins__, dir(__builtins__)[-9])(lst)
  [1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 9]

Might have to tweak it based on your version of Python.

For a more robust version:

  >>> import heapq
  >>> heapq.heapify(lst)
  >>> heapq.nsmallest(len(lst), lst)
  [1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 9]

No built-in sort there either. ;-)

Or, you could show your code instead of trying to get the mailing
list to do your homework for you.
