The point is that the automatic reordering should go away because it's 
causing at least one bug that I know of.  Keys should be read out of the 
registry in the same order they were written to it.  Thus, saying "this 
is a no-op because keys are reordered" isn't a valid argument against 
BiGgUn's patch.  You could equally say "This patch seems completely 
pointless, key re-ordering or not", though and I'd be quite happy.
