I opened a relevant PR,

I believe a key parameter is inferior to a comparison callback. The former is a specific case of the latter, and in my use case would force me to create another class to serve as a comparator for my objects, at which point I might as well wrap them and add __lt__.

Furthermore, I believe this is more in-line with similar standard functions in other languages such as C++ (std::sort), Java (PriorityQueue) or Rust (slice.sort_by).
