Currently I think topNCopy gives a heap instead of a sorted output when you
give it a range that can't be sorted. In this case the last argument of
topNCopy must be false (that is the default).

But if the programmer gives "true" as the last argument, can't topNCopy just
sort the little result calling sort() on it before returning? This way you
don't have to call sort() yourself on the result if you need it truly sorted.

(Please close this enhancement request if I am missing something.)
