It would be nice to be able to sort data frames containing list columns. Should vec_proxy_compare() return seq_along(x)? Or should it return NULL, and then failures would be communicated downstream?

This is needed for (e.g.) tidyr::crossing() and nesting() because (for historical reasons) these sort all columns.

Add relax argument vec_compare_proxy
Quick hack to unblock tidyr development. Needs fuller consideration in #210.
