Yes, but I would still consider it a bug if the ordering of LoadModule
has an effect in this case. (It is a bug that is easy to fix simply by
explicitly specifying the hook ordering in the code.)

In the AAA case, it is a little more complicated. I guess the ability
to reorder using LoadModule could be considered a feature given that
there is no other way to do it.
