Comment (by dcavins):

 Well, this is interesting. Simply changing `usort()` out for `uasort()`
 seems to work OK for our uses of `bp_sort_by_key()`, but we've got a test
 that sorts an object that breaks:

 Other tests of non-assocative arrays that also fail can be fixed like this
 (`assertEquals` compares keys, values and order):
 `$this->assertEquals( $expected, array_values( bp_sort_by_key( $items,
 'value', 'num' ) ) );`

 Is that test sorting an object a good case for keeping `usort()`, or is it
 testing an unlikely use of `bp_sort_by_key()`?

 Opinions welcome! :)
