That is one thing that needs to be done, I think.  But it would be
unfortunate if we have to do that unconditionally, though, as we may
be "buffering" many hundred kilobytes of patch text in core.  If we
can do so without regressing the streaming performance for the most
common case of not using the orderfile on the generating side (hence
not having to sort on the receiving end), it would be ideal.  I am
not sure offhand how much code damage we are talking about, though.

Off the top of my head I do not think of one (but that is not a
guarantee that there isn't any).
