Well, the GNOME team likes to order it by "type" and "library heirarchy". So, libraries in one paragraph, then applications. Plain-C libraries first, followed by glib, and then glib-using libraries, and then gtk+, and gtk+-using libraries, then Python modules, etc. We also separate out lines with and without versions/blocks/use-conditionals in them to make them easier to read. -- ~Nirbheek Chauhan Gentoo GNOME+Mozilla Team
