Sorts the specified array of ints into ascending numerical order.
The sorting algorithm is a tuned quicksort, adapted from Jon
L. Bentley and M. Douglas McIlroy's "Engineering a Sort Function",
Software-Practice and Experience, Vol. 23(11) P. 1249-1265 (November
1993). This algorithm offers n*log(n) performance on many data sets
that cause other quicksorts to degrade to quadratic performance.
