It's not just esthetic reasons. AFAIK this order has been put together 
through trial & error, but was never documented. So this has to be done 
anyway to explain the current order. When work on that commences, we 
might as well aim for an alphabetical order, that way it is more clear 
why certain paackages are in a different order.
