Sorting by delegate

What is the workflow for sorting lists? For example, if you had a list of game objects and wanted to sort them in order of distance from a particular target.

You have me there, I'm not sure how to give you a quick solution or workaround. :/

Sorting a list of integers or strings for example is easy, because the value itself is the sorting order.

Sorting by a member of each item requires the notion of delegates (e.g. "pass me an argument that tells me, provided I give you an item, what on that item I should use to compare and sort").

Delegates are not easy to represent visually in a graph context.

I'll try to think of solutions and let you know if I find any.
