We do, from time-to-time, change on-disk formats in a
backwards-compatible way though.  In any case, it's my understanding
that we don't *guarantee* any ordering currently and therefore we should
discourage users from depending on it.  If we *are* going to guarantee
ordering, then we should document what that ordering is.
