This is the signature of std.algorithm.multiSort:

void multiSort(Range)(Range r) if (validPredicates!(ElementType!Range, less));

I suggest to modify multiSort to make it return a SortedRange, just like
std.algorithm.sort(). This is handy to use multiSort in UFCS chains (sometimes
even using release).


Currently the implementation of SortedRange is:

struct SortedRange(Range, alias pred = "a < b")
if (isRandomAccessRange!Range && hasLength!Range)
{
    private alias binaryFun!pred predFun;
...


So perhaps SortedRange too should change a little to be usable for multiSort,
to support more than one sorting predicate.
