bisect module functions should accept a comparison callable to customize
the way items are compared to do the binary search.

Attached is a patch to the Python implementation of bisect module.

A key argument (like list.sort) can be useful too (I can make a patch if
you like).

Thanks for the submission.  This duplicated some previous feature 
requests which were discussed and ultimately rejected.

Is there any way to find the duplicated issue to see the resolution and
find out why it has been rejected?

Thank you.
