Based upon code I found at [1] I have the following function [2] which
I use to sort result sets. I've just added natural sorting (and
natural caseless sorting) and some examples on usage.

It might be slightly over the top, but it works well for me. No need
to extract the columns from the rows to supply to the sorter.

If you like it and find any issues with it, or enhancements, then I'd
be grateful if you could pass them back to me.
