in reply to Dynamic sort algorithm selection

The problem with my situation was simple, and no one thought of it or caught it, including me. I had

use strict;

in effect, which includes

use strict 'refs';

No dice on the sort subroutine's reference under those conditions. Sorry for the turmoil. I'll go back into my hole in the wall now.
