    whoops! I obviously am as stupid as I look. Didn't really notice this because all my ints are pretty much the same length, and the sorting by int gives fairly randomised results, anyway. Actually, I could zero-fill my script generated numbers, and store them that way.. That way I'd get the speed of sorting using cmp, and slightly simpler code.
