For some operations that is possible and would give some of the benefits, but it loses streaminess so that you would have to wait for the whole operation to complete before seeing any of the output. There are also benefits to having the work done in sorted order, not just the console output presented in sorted order.

So sorting the output after it has been produced is not what I am looking for.
