"John W. Eaton" <address@hidden>:
   Yes, I want Octave's sort algorithm to be stable, which is why Octave
   uses algorithm 5.2.4L from Knuth, Volume 3 (noted in the comments for instead of something quick and simple like qsort from the C
   library, which is not guaranteed to be stable.

I think that this feature of the sort algorithm should be documented in
the manual.
