Hi Guys,

You are correct in that this way a gap would be avoided when the size changes. But given that all like-sized symbols are laid out back to back, this only
happens when the size changes.

So, either the manual must be changed or the code.  I, for one, would rather
have the code changed...

But this might break existing applications which rely upon the current behaviour. Better I feel would be to fix the documentation and then provide a extended version of the --sort-common switch which takes an argument which specifies the direction of the sorting. eg:

  --sort-common=biggest-first  [this would be the default]
