in thread RFC:A brief tutorial on Perl's native sorting facilities.

How sort actually works internally doesn't really matter. What does matter is that being built-in to the language, it understands Perl's internals, is always available and about as fast as you are likely to achieve.

Nice. Now I've got it - the "..., does." was refering to the "doesn't matter" from the previous sentence. Anyways - it's way clearer now.

That I haven't noticed this before, having now read and re-read this dozens of times, does not surprise me. That many other pairs of eyes have looked right past this, does. Welcome to my world.
clap, clap, thank you - having stuttered as a child I just stumble over repeated words. And, good you showed me the "...,does." construct again ;-)
