1. A lint warning is just that a warning. I think in most cases there
is no reason
not sort them alphabetically.

2. The ordering may seem logical to the person who wrote the package initially,
but then the next person comes along and modifies it. Over time we get a mess
and whatever structure the initial author had in mind has disappeared.
