Nope, I meant sorting to produce what the original patch-id would
produce for a diff with the default sorting order.  The result is a
patch-id that can be compared with patch-ids from earlier versions of
git as long as -O<orderfile> was not used (which was already not
compatible with reliable use of patch-id).

I think so, as long as Documentation/git-cherry.txt is updated to stop
pretending 'git cherry' calls 'git patch-id' and the two get comments
about it, though it seems simpler to keep them roughly the same.
(They already differ in handling of binary files.)
