If I am allowed to add my .02 in this thread, the proper way to deal 
with this issue is not by simply commenting out whatever sorting reltool 
may be using or by honoring agreements of two people that may or may not 
remember them ten years down the road, but by extending the 'rel' config 
files with a way to specify application dependencies (if there are any) 
and taking them into account.
