    + * External sort batch: a sort batch which can spill to disk in
    + * order to operate within a defined memory footprint.
    + * <p>
    + * <h4>Basic Operation</h4>
    + * The operator has three key phases:
    + * <p>
    + * <ul>
    + * <li>The load phase in which batches are read from upstream.</li>
    + * <li>The merge phase in which spilled batches are combined to
    + * reduce the number of files below the configured limit. (Best
    + * practice is to configure the system to avoid this phase.)
    + * <li>The delivery phase in which batches are combined to produce
    + * the final output.</li>
    + * </ul>
    + * During the load phase:
    + * <p>
    + * <ul>
    + * <li>The incoming (upstream) operator provides a series of batches.</li>
    + * <li>This operator sorts each batch, and accumulates them in an in-memory
    + * buffer.</li>
    + * <li>If the in-memory buffer becomes too large, this operator selects
    + * a subset of the buffered batches to spill.</li>
    --- End diff --
    A design comment: This "subset" (i.e., half the batches) -- why not spill __all__ the
in-memory batches ? This would likely reduce the IO and the number of runs, which is good.
There is no benefit to maintaining half the batches in memory (unlike Hash Aggregation), accept
some cases where the end of the input is very near.
