I just faced this same attitude in upstrea, python community and lost.  But
they aren't all Unix users so I can forgive them.  When people are using
"predictable" they aren't just refering to being able to look up the rules
surrounding sorting of versions in Fedora 13 and above's version of rpm; we
are really saying that sorting should obey the rules of rpm in all
distributions.  And to some extent, to sorting done by dpkg and other unix
package managers and Unix tools like /usr/bin/sort or even ls with LANG=C
