radix sorting

I've just bumped into this exiting sorting method, and started thinking
that how much would this fit Erlang.
Some questions:

Is this technique used elsewhere in erlang systems, and if it is, then
implemented in pure erlang or in lower level (C??).

Does it make sense (apart from playing around) implement sortings
in erlang, or the libraries cannot be beaten by erlang code?

Radix sorting seems to be most of time applied for lexicographic sorting.
Are there erlang support for this?

Are there methods for sorting by compound keys?
