Comment (by oliphant):

 argsort and sort are special cases because sort does an in-place sort.
 None has never been accepted for these.  I suppose it could be, but we
 can't change the default axis at this point at least until 1.1 which will
 not be for a year or two.

 It would be possible for argsort to accept None and (maybe) for sort to
 accept None as well.

 Bring it up on the list.
