I do not think so.  When you are not limited (i.e. limit_list() is
not called), you could do something like "git rev-list 4 5" in a
history like this:


and get end up getting "5 4 3 2 1", and "2" certainly doesn't get
shown before "5" does.

In your series where cherry-pick runs prepare_revision_walk() and
makes the outcome sort in reverse, the list has to be limited, so
the above is a non-issue, but in the context of this document, we
cannot assume that.
