Your example is a little contrived because an auth module already
checked and accepted the userid.

You're sorting a list and have specified that you don't care about the
position of two things relative to eachother.  Seems reasonable that
their position would change as the overall contents of the list
changes based on implementation of the sort.

Don't get me wrong, being able to influence the hook ordering with
configuration directives sounds cool (e.g. DirectiveXYZ  hook_name
mod_homegrown.c after mod_thirdparty.c) but it doesn't look like
there's a practical problem.
