```Does Phobos have some variadic algorithm to order l-value
reference arguments in place? Something like

int a=3;
int b=2;
int c=1;

orderInPlace(a,b,c);

// a is now 1
// b is now 2
// c is now 3

Also a functional variant, say `order(a, b, c)`, that returns a
tuple would also be nice.

```anonymous:

Despite some holes, std.algorithm and std.range are quite
powerful. Sometimes using them feels like playing a puzzle game
:-)
