#284: Glitch in sort function (and method) description
 Reporter:  faltet      |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  low         |   Milestone:  1.0 Release
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  devel      
 Severity:  minor       |    Keywords:             

 In the description for the sort() function, the worst case for 'quicksort'
 is O({{{n^2}}}) and not O(n) as stated. However, the description for
 argsort() is correct.

 Using NumPy 1.0b5 here. Sorry if this has been corrected already in SVN.
