sortDescendants abstract method Null safety
Sorts the given
descendants into focus order.
Subclasses should override this to implement a different sort for next and previous to use in their ordering. If the returned iterable omits a node that is a descendant of the given scope, then the user will be unable to use next/previous keyboard traversal to reach that node.
Having the current node in the list is what allows the algorithm to
determine which nodes are adjacent to the current node. If the
currentNode is removed from the list, then the focus will be unchanged
when next or previous are called, and they will return false.
When implementing an override for this function, be sure to use mergeSort instead of Dart's default list sorting algorithm when sorting items, since the default algorithm is not stable (items deemed to be equal can appear in arbitrary order, and change positions between sorts), whereas mergeSort is stable.
