My idea for a solution was to modify tuplesort to allow storing the

setting a field so it does not sort thee already sorted tuples

unsure how clean or ugly this code would be. Was this something you
I'm not sure. I believe that best answer depends on particular
parameter: how much memory we've for sort, how expensive is underlying
node and how it performs rescan, how big are groups in partial sort.
Yes, if one does not need a rescan your solution will use less memory
and about the same amount of CPU (if the tuplesort does not spill to
disk). While if we keep all the already sorted tuples in the tuplesort
rescans will be cheap but more memory will be used with an increased
chance of spilling to disk.
