Hi,

Is there any good reason not to allow radix sorting via order() over the entire range of R (32bit) integers, instead of setting a hard limit at 100,000? Many machines have plenty of memory to support this. Seems like it 581qlink2"></a><a name="0581qlink2">ame="0581qlink2">>name="0581qlink2">a> name="0581qlink2"></a><a name="0581">qlin name="0581qlink2">k2"><a name="0581qlink2">ame="0581qlink2">is jname="0581qlink2">ust name="0581qlink2">a ma<a name="0581qlink2">tter of dynamic allocating the bucket array instead of the current static allocation.

This would really help with e.g. sorting positions in the genome.

I'm happy to submit a patch if this sounds sensible.

Thanks,
Michael
