patch: sorting by version

sorry if this is not the right mail address, but i didn't find any other
apart from sort author private mail. 

lately i found myself in need of sorting a file on version numbers, like
1.0.1 or 1.12-27. i patched sort to use the same algorithm used by
debian's dpkg and it worked for me. yes, i know that version number
sorting is quite arbitrary but an half working algorithm is better than
nothing. patch is attached.

thank you very much for your time,
