EXAMPLE

Up to n=4 all permutations can be sorted by a double-ended queue (deque for short).

For n=5 the permutation 24351 cannot: you first queue 2 on either side, then 4 on either side, then 3 has to be queued on the same side as 4 otherwise it will "block" 2 between 3 and 4, but then whatever side you queue 5, you will block either 2 (between 4 and 5) or 3 (between 4 and 5).
