Oh, lovely.

Are there any viable alternatives to using GNU sort?  If their release
does not (for our purposes) include documentation, the human-time cost
of using their sort just took a big jump.

Do we depend on any GNUisms?  I'm wondering, if I go looking for a
sort, what spec I should be matching against.
