Well, it seems to make the users happy, so that's good enough for me. 
There was particular concern from users about what values are returned
when multiple rules or multi-statement rules are fired, and ordering
them by ASCII order does give them the tools needed to get the job done.
We already order NAME by strcmp, so I don't see how we are breaking
anything by doing the same for rules.
