I'm not sure the two are really comparable. However, looking at a
simple string sort on 30,000 strings, I don't see it taking a
significant amount of time at all:
t1 = time.time()
a = range(100000, 130000)
b = [str(i) for i in a]
t2 = time.time()
t3 = time.time()

Actually, reading the code it seems that it's about the file merge
order of a single package. My participation in this entire discussion
is m00t. Never mind. :p
