A side-note on this: Suitable Object/Comparable versions of
DualPivot sort might someday be better fits to the parallel split
logic and locality patterns than current Arrays.sort.
Vladimir and I discussed this briefly a few years ago, but I
don't know if they were ever developed.

Otherwise, on quick glance, despite the now-huge vertical-space usage :-),
the updated webrev looks OK to me.
