I see the problem as the following: If the file contains unicode Unicode
charaters it eats disk space but is fast to read thus sorting is fast.
If it is compressed but unbuffered sorting is slow and eats CPU.
If it's buffered either because it is compressed or "just for fun" it eats
So I think the decission should be made carfully.
