Is there some benefit to the old ordering?
I assumed that the old approach just gave the user an arbitrary
ordering, in which case any change here is no big deal. But, if there
is a benefit to the old ordering, sure, restore it.
How stable a sort would you want? You could just fall back to the
objfile's address. Or is that too awful?
