it is all ok with me, but not everybody has personal test cases for
sorting sequence, and soembvody might get bitten by a subtle change
like this which pop up every once in a while.  thus the conflated
thing -> 2 names.  the old one could be deprecated or so, i was
thinking.  i get your points though and didn't realize about the
docstroing.  i have no strong opinion on this; just wanted the idea of
disambiguating out there.  as long as 2 things are not conflated
that's good.
