Great. Actually the workaround on my side is going to be easier than I thought, because I
just realized I've already written a custom JSON encoder, for the purpose of generating canonical
JSON (necessary for getting consistent revision IDs for the same document bodies.) And a big
part of what that encoder does is write dictionary keys in sorted order. So I can use that
to write the main document body, and then make sure to write the attachment bodies sorted
in the same order by filename. (Pieter, I think I can have this pushed out pretty soon, probably
later today.)
