I don't mind having an insert into a sorted list, but
1) we're not stl, so this algorithm is not a generic one. Soon
   we'll get slist_insert_sorted, array_insert_sorted, etc.
2) I don't understand if there is any reason to use rlist in this
   case, why not use a red-black tree?
3) Why do we have the test in the server, while the library itself
   is a subproject? I believe the library does have unit tests,
   why not add tests there?
