The order might not be random, but my perception is, that there is far less
intention in the ordering.

Well, in a debugging session I'd like to get the info about the state of
objects as easily as possible, so that I can understand what is going on.
_I_ am not trying to guess, if there is some intention in the ordering of
instances vars and what the intention is, to quickly find the instance var
I'm interested in.

But no biggie. There are surely other possibilities to get there and more
pressing issues to solve.
