It works. I tried it.

Yes. (but +/- is obsolete; you should use -k1,1 (the syntax of -k option
is a bit different, first it starts at number 1 instead of 0; then the
second field is included).

It seems that the (old) version of sort I have assumes -k1 is equal to -k1,1
while newer ones assume that -k1 means -k1,"last" (which after reading the
man page seems more logical).

So we both have answers to our questions :)
