In my experience sorting individual characters of a string is relatively
rare. While I sort lists and tables almost daily, I can't recall ever
needing to sort characters over the last 20 years.
It probably wouldn't be hard for them to extend the sort command to
support that, but if you submit a request don't be surprised if other
things take priority. :)
And in the meantime Jacque's handy function will get you through the day.
