That's what I tought, thanks.

I just like play with things. First checked the behavior of sorting on
multiValued field and what I noticed was, let's say you have docs with field
called 'num':
Sorting by the field num what you get is:
After sorting asc I get: doc2,doc1,doc3.
The behavior seems to be always the same (I am not saying it works like that
but it's what I've seen in my examples)
After seeing that I just decided to check the performance. The point is
simply curiosity.
