feels like I'm missing something now :))

right now I don't see a point in having sort__need_collapse enabled
for group report.. there seems to be no special processing as it was
in the initial patchset..?

It seems like you could do only stadard period resort (collapsed if
needed) and afterwards run current hists__match and hists_link function
they are now.

All you need at the output callback is paired leader hist entry.. where
you do the temp array magic to get the data.

/me going to dishonour some whiteboard.. ;)
