Ya, I also did this myself on some tests. It is very easy to get
tricked on this (well, at least it was easy for me to get tricked :-)
because for the same dictionary in multiple tests, python will give
you the same order. It is when you switch versions of python that the
ordering will start to change and you'll realize it. Sneaky!

Sweet! Give a heads up when you're done and I can build the windows
installer and update the HappyDoc documentation.

Also, can we try to get the pdf documentation in the release this
time? :-). You can grab it from the normal place:


If you put it in the Doc directory it would automagically be included
(I hope!).
