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]
