I don't want to argue whether the patch is a big win or not (I recognize that it is a tradeoff), but when using a key it does shave off more than the call to sortwrapper_richcompare.

Stack with sortwrapper:

long_richcompare
do_richcompare
PyObject_RichCompare
sortwrapper_richcompare
do_richcompare
PyObject_RichCompare
PyObject_RichCompareBool
count_run
list_sort

Stack without:

long_richcompare
do_richcompare
PyObject_RichCompare
PyObject_RichCompareBool
count_run
list_sort
