I think you will need to use a schema aware comparison for sorting the
lists, as I attempt to do in the linked patch. Otherwise the
bisections and such will fail.

For example, if you are looking for case-insensitive duplicates in
{A b C c d}, and the list is sorted with ldb_val_cmp(), you would see
{A C b c d} and the duplicate C-c would be separated and thus missed
by the optimised algorithm.
