D2 code:

import std.algorithm, std.typecons;
void main() {
    //Tuple!(int)[] chars; // OK
    Tuple!(char)[] chars; // Error
    schwartzSort!((c){ return c[0]; })(chars);

It doesn't compile with DMD 2.052:

...\dmd\src\phobos\std\algorithm.d(5911): Error: template instance
SortedRange!(Zip!(char[],Tuple!(char)[]),myLess) does not match template
declaration SortedRange(Range,alias pred = "a < b") if
...\dmd\src\phobos\std\algorithm.d(5912): Error:
SortedRange!(Zip!(char[],Tuple!(char)[]),myLess) is used as a type

You can't sort efficiently the items of an Unicode string because in general
they don't have the same length. But a dynamic array of Tuple!(char) is
composed by items 1 byte long, and generally it's not meant to be a string. So
in this case I expect schwartzSort to be able to sort it.

Current workaround:

import std.algorithm, std.typecons;
void main() {
    Tuple!(char)[] chars;
    schwartzSort!((c){ return cast(int)c[0]; })(chars);
