Given that we are releasing in part because of sort, I think we could
justify turning on your sort --debug patch.  It seems like we can only
help ourselves in answering bug reports about sort if we get that in
first.  Or put another way, the very existence of the patch will help us
identify if the patch somehow introduced inadvertent regressions.

I don't have anything other than my doc patch for sort outstanding that
I think is worth including now.

I also started a thread on gnulib a couple weeks ago on how best to use
xfreopen (actually, a new interface) to properly enable binary mode
without clobbering append mode, but haven't gotten back to it.  However,
the effect on cygwin of keeping the current code is no different than it
was for 8.4 (that is, it is not a showstopper to fix it before releasing
