I know there isn't an absolute or stable ordering, but can't a temporary
ordering be exported?

I was under the impression that the bk->cvs gateway squashed changes into a
sort of order, way back when. Admittedly this order wasn't stable, and new
changes perturbed the whole list. But just for debugging purposes with a
"patch vs last -rc"?
