Take a single buffer, clear it, then take a randomized big vector,
filter it by different keys to reduce to about 50% of the original size,
then sort it multiple times by different keys, inserting the elements
one by one into the buffer. For each insertion, do a formatting step
that calls the same 3-4 functions every time. That would be somewhat
similar to what Gnus does to build the article list.

This might be a good performance test for any proposed concurrent changes.
