Hmm, what line would that be?  We do have a tradeoff
among clarity, completeness, and conciseness here.

By the way, the info page (which is the actual documentation
for 'sort' -- the man page is a poor substitute) has a series
of examples, one of which is how to sort Apache log files.
This kind of detail is too long for "sort --help", alas.
