Algorithm to sort edge list of simple polygon for 2D and 3D (used in Blender, coded in Python)
"""
Script to sort edge list of a simple polygon with 1 face in Blender with Python.
Something like this:
0_________3
/ \
4/ \2
\ /
5\_________/1
becomes sorted as {[4,5],[5,1],...,[0,4]}.
Tested with Blender v2.67.
