Why isn't there an overload for `std.algorithm.sorting.sort` that 
takes a `unaryFun` lambda?

Something like

     x[].sort!"a.m";

sorting elements in `x` according to the value of element member 
`m` compared to the longer

     x[].sort!"a.m < b.m";

Perhaps under a different name `sortBy` x[].sortBy!"a.m";
