Read-only variant of the SORT command. It is exactly like the original SORT but refuses the STORE option and can safely be used in read-only replicas.

Since the original SORT has a STORE option it is technically flagged as a writing command in the Redict command table. For this reason read-only replicas in a Redict Cluster will redirect it to the master instance even if the connection is in read-only mode (see the READONLY command of Redict Cluster).

The SORT_RO variant was introduced in order to allow SORT behavior in read-only replicas without breaking compatibility on command flags.

See original SORT for more details.
