Improve performance on SORTUP and SORTDOWN functions
Performance on functions SORTUP and SORTDOWN is dramatically catastrophic when there are "lots" of data to sort (25 min to sort 1 000 000 of numbers). See test case attached. Improving performance of those functions is more that required. New sorting algorithm must guarantee high and stable performance in any case even on sorted data and with huge quantity of data.
