I couldn't see any evidence that the properties would always come out in
the same order; it looks like it defers to Hashtable, which definitely
doesn't have defined iteration order (in theory, but probably does in
practice (unless any of that security-driven randomized hashCode stuff
went in (which I can't see any evidence of))).
