With due respect guys, you're both somewhat wrong. ;)

The problem with Apple's format is that it is a simple ordered archive which is
based on the internal implementation of initWithCoder: for each class, which
can change.  Also, we have no way of knowing what elements appear in what order
in the archive. 

Even if we could follow the same encoding scheme, while it might be simple to
make one class match the order of the one on MOSX, it would be a monumental
effort to make them all match considering that the encoding is dependent upon
the internals of the class being encoded.
