Instead of using Qsort or another "on-the-fly" sorting routing, make a
routing that sorts the spells at bootup time instead (Of course qsort can
be used for this :). Drop it into an Array and then when players request
it, you don't waste valuable CPU time sorting. It will of course slow your
bootup time with an unknown factor, but I gather we're at miliseconds :)

Just my 2 cents
