Due to the fact that many of our interfaces return things in a hash, there is
no getting away from having to do the sorting in lots of places (unless we
change the interfaces or design a hash iterator that iterates in sorted order).

If you're looking for my old mail, the threads were:

2003-10-13 "Sorted order for output of "status" etc."
2004-05-31 "PATCH: Perform multi-file operations in sorted order"

And these are related:

2004-05-30 "RFC: Hash dumps in sorted order" (Greg Hudson)
2005-02-22 "Sorted output from Subversion commands" (Branko Cibej)

(Sorry for not providing links to the archives. I looked them up in my mailbox.)
