i dont bother about the name. if this is better i will change it.

now this would be:

return compare (p1.x, p2.x, std::less <double> ())
                (p1.y, p2.y, std::greater <double> ())
                (p1.z, p2.z, f);

or nearly the same:

return compare (p1.x, p2.x)
                (p2.y, p1.y)
                (p1.z, p2.z, f);

if the name lexicographic is ok, i will put it in the sandbox. i assume
the directory utility is the correct place.
