I wouldn't have believed it, except I saw it with my own eyes.
Sure enough, Windows 2000 retains the creation order.  I even
modified the code to leave the keys over a cold boot, and it
still retained the creation order.  I had always assumed
regedit was displaying items in the order it got from
RegEnumValue.  Well, today was a good day, I learned something

Does anyone know if the same is true of key ordering?
