I already did while traveling. :-)

Yes.  I was just trying to explain that perpetual scripts would not
follow the dependency order that other scripts have and rather need to
be named appropriately if they need to be run in a fixed order on the
same stratum.  This needs to be coordinated among maintainers if
necessary.  At the moment we only have two usable strata, so this might
become an issue for the perpetual scripts running there.  I've already
named the autorebase script to be very early in the sort order (but left
room for something a 000_cygwin might want to do).

Good, I was just worried that someone with a strange locale might end up
with a different sort order.
