Perl 5 module for sorting of revision-like numbers

   SortVersions allows easy sorting of mixed non-numeric
   and numeric strings, like the "version numbers" that many
   shared library systems and revision control packages use.
   This is quite useful if you are trying to deal with shared
   libraries. It can also be applied to applications that
   intersperse variable-width numeric fields within text.
   Other applications can undoubtedly be found.

   For an explanation of the algorithm, it's simplest to look
   at these examples

     1.1   <  1.2
     1.1a  <  1.2
     1.1   <  1.1.1
     1.1   <  1.1a
     1.1.a <  1.1a
     1     <  a
     a     <  b
     1     <  2
     1     <  0002
     1.5   <  1.06
