About the CPU equality with the SAS sort: I can't say I'd have anticipated
it, but in hindsight I'm not too surprised. Syncsort's trademark has
always been very efficient I/O; and, given the 33% saving in wall time,
that seems to be what's happening here too.
I'll be interested to see if you can tweak it to do better than it does out
of the box.
