Dear Greg,

Thanks for bringing this up

i think what Tim answered is correct. but, i believe the "desired"
approach is to put all those blocks to be tangled to the same file under
a headline with a property drawer containing something like:
:header-args+: :tangle "submsim.jl"
i believe this is for performance of tangling, but possibly the
"multiple source blocks to same :tangle'd file" feature may disappear?
cheers, Greg

Once again, there is a unit test designed to check that different blocks tangling to the same file are concatenated in the right order, this without a common property drawer. Hence I believe this behavior is not accidental, but a wanted feature.

I always understood that this was the expected behavior, to allow descriptions to interleave code in a literate config situation.

However, if the documentation is ambiguous, or lacking, then we should probably make the docs clear, so that this question does not rise again in the future.
