with the results. Rather than having to write a program to parse du -k's
output, sort it, and then make it 'human readable', this would work *much*
better as a builtin option.

Maybe take a look at <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?2565>? I'm currently petitioning to get this, or an equivalent patch, added to sort.
