Really?  That certainly wasn't the intention of that change.

The compute_write_order() function first fills the commits in the
original recency order (the order in which rev-list discovered them
by traversing the history from the tips) until we find a commit that
is tagged by a ref in the refs/tags/ hierarchy.  When we reach that
point, we stop showing the commits and show all the tags in the
refs/tags/ hierarchy and commits that are tagged by them, breaking
the original ordering of commits so that ancient but tagged commits
clump at this point.  After that, we resume showing the rest of the
commits and tags in the original order they came to us.  Trees are
done next, and then the remainder.

So I am not sure how trees can appear between commits.
