sort by length of line (Weird)

OK - that's just weird. I see what's going on, but what I'd expect is what (I
think) Craig expects - that I'd get a list of the strings sorted by their
character lengths.

Is there *any* use case in which you'd want strings sorted by the alphabetic
representations of their lengths? I can't think of any.

To my mind, the "length" modifier should automatically force a numeric sort.
