'python-stablesort' is an adaptive, stable, natural mergesort. It is a back-port of the new Python CVS (i.e., the upcoming version 2.3) stable listsort algorithm to all Python versions (tested with all versions from 1.5.2 to 2.2.3). It can also be regarded as some sort of forward-port in case the default Python list sort() method will change to a non-stable algorithm in the future again.
