My understanding was that objects would not be required to implement 
sortKey (and wouldn't be adversely affected for not implementing it) 
unless they cared about the specific issue that it addresses. I'll 
verify this w/Jeremy tomorrow, but last I heard ordering should only 
actually be an issue for Connection objects - other objects that 
play with the transaction mgr will generally not be subject to the 
deadlock issue that the sorting is designed to prevent (the deadlock
is due to connection interaction w/a storage server).
