I know the XPath approach seems to be dying a quiet death, but I'd
like to offer one more stake to drive through its heart: isn't it the
case that this only works if you know the schema of all the record
that you're going to be sorting? And worse, if all the records have
the _same_ schema? Matthew's example (MODS and DC, I think it was)
suggests that this isn't the case.
