StackOverflow Importer

Do you ever feel like all you’re doing is copy/pasting from Stack Overflow?

Let’s take it one step further.

from stackoverflow import quick_sort will go through the search results
of [python] quick sort looking for the largest code block that doesn’t
syntax error in the highest voted answer from the highest voted question
and return it as a module. If that answer doesn’t have any valid python
code, it checks the next highest voted answer for code blocks.
>>> from stackoverflow import quick_sort, split_into_chunks

>>> print(quick_sort.sort([1, 3, 2, 5, 4]))
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

>>> print(list(split_into_chunks.chunk("very good chunk func")))
['very ', 'good ', 'chunk', ' func']

>>> print("I wonder who made split_into_chunks", split_into_chunks.__author__)
I wonder who made split_into_chunks https://stackoverflow.com/a/35107113

>>> print("but what's the license? Can I really use this?", quick_sort.__license__)
but what's the license? Can I really use this? CC BY-SA 3.0
>>> assert("nice, attribution!")

This module is licensed under whatever license you want it to be as long as the license is compatible with the fact that I blatantly copied multiple lines of code from the Python standard library.
