Hmm, I'm not sure this is a good idea.  I don't think it's crazy to
report the locks in the order they are defined in the source code;
many people will be familiar with that order, and it might make the
list easier to maintain.  On the other hand, I'm also not sure this is
a bad idea.  Alphabetical order is a widely-used standard.  So, I'm
going to abstain from any strong position here and ask what other
people think of Thom's proposed change.
