Here kwrite isn't attempting to become kate -- no multi-doc-interface issues
surrounding adding 'sort' at all. Just giving kwrite the same sort tool kate
has. Depending on what I'm doing, I may have one 20 doc kate window open and
then another 5-6 instances of kwrite. There a many times when I'm cleaning up
build dependencies, I like to put them in an array by alphabetical order so it
makes it easier to parse the list. In kate, it is a simple matter of doing:

Tools -> Sort -> Sort-Dialog (set ascending/descending and click go) the data
immediately sorts:

  here is the data:

  Here is the menu item 'Sort':

  Here is the result (all sorted)
