A couple of my early attempts depended on the idea that the trump suit
absolutely determined the ranking of the cards, independent of knowing
anything else. It doesn't work, though.

On this input:
Hearts
Qd
9h
9d
Qc
Qh

That code produces:
Hearts
Qh
9h
Qd
9d
Qc


(diamonds next to hearts) when it should be:
Hearts
Qh
9h
Qc
Qd
9d

(clubs between hearts and diamonds.) Ordering the hand can't come
without considering what suits are present.
