      Glad either works for you. If "sort -k" skips what you need,
      then it's a nice solution that doesn't require vim7 in the event
      you are stuck with an older version on a *nix box. The vim7
      internal sort has the nice feature that you can find the
      sort-index by regexp, so if you have to skip over something "-k"
      doesn't treat kindly, vim7's internal sort may give you a hand.
      Additionally, since DOS sort doesn't have anything so smart as
      "-k", vim7's sort can save the day on a win32 box.
