Hm...  I see...

Well, your sorting function could emulate the gathering and then do the
sorting based on that emulation.  The sorting functions should have
access to everything necessary to do so.

The reason I'm less than enthusiastic about changing the order of things
here is that this is really, really old code, and lots people have written
their own sorting functions based on the way it works.  Changing the
order will lead to breakages.
