No, table.sort() is not part of the minimal core that is exposed by
the C API, is it part of the standard libraries. Some of the standard
library functions are just simple wrappers around core functions, but
not all of them - table.sort() is not, also table.insert(),
string.rep(), string.reverse(), etc.
