If you get the newest [list]-abs now, you'll also get a new [list-sort]
which now uses the fast data structure sorting method, replacing Michael
Seta's very first [list-sort] implementation. Inside it requires
[list-rdrip] which is a simplified version Matju's [list-drip] stripped
of the reordering, so it "drips" a list in reverse order, which is a
little bit faster again. (As we resort the list anyhow, the drip-order
doesn't matter.)

All in all it doesn't compare to Zexy's [sort] yet, because it drips and
then rebuilds a list with the slow [list prepend]x[t a] idiom, but all in all
it's already pretty okay.
