I don't know if I care about TimSort (though I'd really *like* to know
that). That's exactly the sort of question documentation is meant to
answer. It needs to be ready before the review, so that reviewers can even
do the review. It also needs to exist so that after the review, users can
determine if the code will be useful to them, without having to create or
run benchmarks, or read source code.
