Here is some documentation on Timsort:

   1. Wiki <>
   2. brief description in python dev list
   3. Original implementation <>

Francisco and I are in the middle of rewriting the docs for the Sort
library. Integrating Timsort in there once done will be relatively simple.

I would prefer a mini-review myself (as I agreed to do when adding new
algorithms to the collection).but Ronald suggested I do a full review. My
main questions are: Does anyone care about Timsort?
Will Alexander maintain the source and answer questions about it?

If you don't care about Timsort, you don't need to review it.
