This is potentially a problem for close-areas.pl in osmarender (which
parses XML due to regexps, eww) - not saying that this ordering will
necessarily break things, but that it's worth checking to make sure it
doesn't.  (I've been bitten by this in the past when using ElementTree
in Python, which always orders attributes alphabetically.)

Out of curiosity, does it work with gcj?  (Is gcj even remotely
competitive yet?)
