in a consistent order between runs. At this point in the code, we're just
dealing with a list of strings, so it really doesn't matter, we just need them
in a consistent ordering. lexically looks simpler and faster (not that this is
How about this comment:
// We just need the paths to be emitted in a consistent order, so lexical sort
// is fine (ie, we don't need svn_sort_compare_paths, but it work work too).
