Name recognition matters. In fact, for Open Source companies
it may be the only thing they have to work with. As such,
I think the order is important. I'm afraid that going the
alphabetical order way we're sending the wrong message:
"Don't bother sending patches in, just choose a company
name that sorts high". And ultimately, this is bad for Wine.

Also, this seems to be blown out of proportion: none of the
possible candidates have a problem with a ranked list.
In fact, I think 3 out of 4 supported the idea :) Why not
just do that?
