The code has been merged/ported from a quicksort I wrote. I'm not going
to restrict myself on how I will be able to use this original code in
As licensing it under the terms of CC zero or similar apparently
wouldn't change the situation, I suggest to cherry pick the changes that
are not copyrightable. For example, the first commit (the correct
placing of the pivot element) doesn't seem to be copyrightable.
