I don't think so; that would mean any use of ada-mode would cause a
conflict in auto-mode-alist.

Hmm; if all core package autoloads are executed before all ELPA package
autoloads, that would at least be deterministic; if the ELPA package is
installed and active, it's entry is first in auto-mode-alist and thus
always wins.

If both are ELPA packages, the order probably depends on file-system
sorting, or sorting on the package name, or something equally obscure.
