Yes, but were the users right?  I would have asked for that order of
entry, too,
but would have changed my mind for fear of bugs when reminded that the
old way
to specify tuning was in order of string numbering.  (Bugs made by me
in my .ly
files, that is)
If you found this reversal not too error-prone, then maybe the users
were right.

As far as old files go, the convert-ly rule automatically does the
conversion, so you don't even need to think about it.

As far as new files go, I think the user can learn whatever syntax is
