This isn't an argument either way, but note that JUnit (and NUnit and
PHPUnit) all have assertEquals methods that take the arguments in the
order "expect, actual".  I've always assumed that Git's test framework
was imitating that, although I have no idea why that particular order is
chosen and is so common.
