in reply to Vexing views of variables

Perhaps irrelevant, but $a and $b are special for sort, and should never be used elsewhere, unless you are expecting sort to call the sub.

    I think that lexical $a and $b are still OK (and have no significance to sort), but you're right that they're sub-optimal choices of names. I've changed it—thanks!
