If you need it. I'm not particularly fond of writing code before it's needed.

If you can measure the impact for that particular case where qsort
might be needed, and it's a real-world case, then by all means.

Otherwise, if it's a rarely-encountered corner case, I'd recommend
simply calling the stdlib's qsort.
