Is it not possible to have sort-lines _optionally_ ignore

Are you discussing picking one or the other behavior only as
the default behavior, or are you discussing picking it as the
only behavior?

The patch makes ignoring invisible end of line characters the default as it was years ago when sort-lines worked for outline entries.
It would certainly make sense to have an option that toggled this behavior that worked across the sort functions.  Eventually both cases will likely be accommodated but the discussion is focused on what if anything to do in the immediate term.   I am happy to make a patch with such an option if that would settle things faster but there would still be the issue of the default behavior.
