Yeah, I've suffered from similar issues trying to test the other JSON
libraries I've written over the years. There's also another legit(ish)
reason to want a consistent serialisation order: canonicalisation for
signing. I don't know of anyone doing that, yet, though :-)
Perhaps I'll change it, then, so that it uses a Dictionary internally,
and add some way of serializing to JSON with keys in *sorted* order,
which then gives a kind of canonical form for the tests... I'll take a
look this weekend, if I get time.
