Ah,

To answer my own question:

I guess this is not good because self.ravel might return a copy, in
situations I don't think I fully grasp?  Guessing that there is no
other way to do a guaranteed inplace sort for axis=None, I guess that
making that clear in the method docstring is the best way to go?
