Even without using orderBefore, the specification still requires a stable
ordering of children for nodes that support orderable child nodes (see 23.1
of JCR 2.0 spec).  One possibility is to limit the use of the B-tree to
nodes that do not support orderable children, and fall back to the simple
array for orderable children.  Of the use cases I'm aware of for flat
hierarchies, none require an ordering of the children anyway, so this might
be an acceptable limitation in the implementation.
