Is there an obvious reason why the list directives
for locals include a -sort- for text but not a -sort-
for numbers?

 local mylist 0.5 2.5 12
 local mylist : list sort mylist
 macro list _mylist

Many tasks involve sorting lists, it would be a lot
easier if I did not always need to write a bubble sort.

Or is there another way to easily sort a numeric list
stored in macro?
