comment Data “unsort” / homogeneity algorithm
Ah! I very see what you're getting at here. Sort, then segregate based on the size of the chain of sameness. If this doesn't work outright it should be pretty close. Thanks for your help and the cleanup on the question! Hopefully I'll get to try this out the next time I need to process this kind of data in Sept.

And there will be exact duplicates in the data. This might be an interesting place to start though.
