That was probably done deliberately, back in the day when constraints
tended to have uselessly random names like "$1" --- sorting by the
constraint text was more helpful.  I agree that now sorting by name
seems like the better thing.

Even in the "$x" case, it's better to have them sorted in that order (ie. the order they were created...)

I think there's nothing wrong with the "ORDER BY 1" part ... it's the
fact that the columns are selected in a different order than they'll
be used that seems bizarre to me.  I fixed it like this instead.

Ah, the way that requires effort :)
