bug#11325: 24.1.50; regression: bad order for `substitute-command-keys'

Subject: bug#11325: 24.1.50; regression: bad order for `substitute-command-keys' with keymap

eamcs -Q
 
1. Visit a Dired buffer, then switch back to *scratch*.
 
2. Type this: (substitute-command-keys "\\{dired-mode-map}")

3. Then hit C-j.
 
Look at where you find these entries: `e..f' and `0..9'.
They are out of order.
 
The order provided in all Emacs versions prior to Emacs 23 is
reasonable and user-friendly.  It puts `e..f' among the
lowercase letter, in alphabetical order, i.e., between `d' and
`g'.  It puts `0..9' between `.' and `<', i.e., in ASCII order
(`:' is not bound in Emacs prior to Emacs 23).
 
This was broken first in Emacs 23, which puts `0..9' and `e..f'
first in the list, in that order.
 
Then it was broken differently in Emacs 24, which puts `e..f'
first in the list, but restores `0..9' to its rightful place.
 
Users should be able to find chars/keys in ASCII order.  This is
particularly important for letters.
