And Oracle's explanation of the query:
... provides enhanced performance for another common analytical query: computing the "top N" (or "bottom N") of a ranked list. A typical query would be "find the top 20 salespeople
in the east region." Rather than sorting all of the salespeople, Oracle only keeps track of the top
20 salespeople when processing this query, thus providing significantly better performance.
