No, I can't. That's probably input for the style vs category vs table
vs UI debate, where I'd rather, like Stefan, go for the path of
least redesign which seems to plug sorting to a style.

Perhaps I'll change my opinion with specific use cases where
using my proposed sorting function with flex isn't a good
