Hi Nathan,

I have just commited the C++ version of ensure_sorted_indices().
So far it is for the inplace branch only, but it can be easily extended.
I have also written a small test case. Benchmarks were not done yet,

You have updated the files under my hands, so I had to quickly merge the
changes -> I hope no bugs were introduced :)
