I'm not sure if it's an official generic template, but I have a generic
sort function (in fact two of them, but only one works correctly) at

Use sortcall.xslt on sort.xml, selecting the simple sort, to demonstrate

The point is that you provide your own type-specific comparison template
and this gets called from your included sort template. There's a
standard way of calling the sort templates so that you can parameterise
the choice of method. It's quite a neat solution really.
