I think the difference between wanting outermost first or last, is
the difference between
        svn failingcommand
        svn failingcommand 2>&1 | more

That is: some common use patterns give easiest access to the first
lines, others to the last lines. No help there.

I can tell you that Python stacks (outermost first) drive me buggers,
because I'm so used to Java stacks (outermost last). But Java stacks
used to drive me nuts because they were inverted from adb stacks. Go
figure. I don't think there's any compelling argument to be had,
