​Why would anyone make a separate handler ​for this, and even more so, why
make it a function that takes a value by reference and then hands a value
back rather than a handler that changes the value in place?

But back to the first point, this function can be eliminated in three lines
of code:

combine someArray using cr
sort lines of someArray -- however you like
split someArray by cr
