In general I'd prefer deterministic behavior.  Yes, I know, readdir
order is typically deterministic, so if you use readdir order then
includedir order will be deterministic as well -- not manageable, but
deterministic.  But I can live with this -- if people want include order
other than readdir order then they shouldn't use includedir.
