Perhaps so, but that doesn't take away from Heikki's point: it's still
ugly.  I don't understand why the sorts can't all be nested under the
GroupAggregate nodes.  We have a number of nodes already (e.g. Append)
that support an arbitrary number of children, and I don't see why we
can't do the same thing here.
