I think what you want to do is start from the beginning with two  
separate lists, sort each one however you want, and then either join  
them with zip() or simply reference them as (list1[n], list2[n]).

I believe there's also a way to use zip() to separate your list of  
tuples into separate lists, but I don't know how off the top of my  
head.  You can find out if you follow these instructions though:

Go to
enter 'zip inverse', and check search Python only.

All I ask is that the kind of unsolvable that it turns out to be has
respectable precedents.  -Jerry Fodor
