I have no issue with the overhead if it is truly minimal.  I never saw
any reason to sort the list of nicks.  They are sorted in "server order"
which I think shows how long everyone has been in the channel relative
to eachother.

I like to keep the number of configurable options down to a minimum, so
I'm happy to make this sorting the default, and remove
