Re: st: Problem with seed and bootstrap
I find that -sort, stable- can easily double the time for a sort. In most
of my work, -sort- is responsible for most of the time to run my do files
(most data management tasks seem to involve sorting) and when working with
files with hundreds of thousands or millions of observations, I'd definitely
not want to trade off that speed. I very rarely encounter the need for
the -,stable- option.

Imagine that -sort ... , stable- was the default, but that you could
avoid it with an -unstable- option. Can anybody imagine a situation
where a user would benefit from the -unstable- option?
