If it should be sorted[1], it should really be sorted in the reverse
order of distfile-download size. That would be extremely useful on
systems with slow internet connections. Too many times have I sat
waiting for libreoffice-bin to download while a webkit-gtk recompile
waits in the queue.

We already have the information during dependency resolution with
--verbose, and it costs very little. Besides, sorting even 30,000
entries (if you're merging every ebuild in portage) should not take
more than a few secs.

1. I'm obviously assuming that dep nodes that do not depend on each
other would be sorted
