GnuCash 2.2.x and advanced-report-sorted

What is the difference between this report and the existing
"advanced portfolio" report?  Would it be worthwhile to combine
them into a single report where the "sorting" part is just
a report option?  Or are the reports so significantly
different that merging them would be nearly impossible?

If you can combine them into a single report with an option
to add sorting, sending in a patch (svn diff) would be a good
way to get it applied to SVN for the next release....
