I'm perfectly willing to believe you. As I said, I don't know why was
it done otherwise.

The patch is even simpler.

        * textmodes/texinfmt.el: Use internal sort (partial revert of 
revno:89810).
        (texinfo-sort-region, texinfo-sort-startkeyfun): Restore functions.
        (texinfo-format-printindex): Use `texinfo-sort-region' instead of
        calling external sort utility.
