We already do have at least some order dependencies. I can research to find
exactly what they are if you want me to, but I can remember at least one in
the Macintosh world of metrowerks.hpp, msl.hpp, and macos.hpp.

Note that if we add this, it would be the only compiler-specific code in

But I don't feel strongly about which fix is better. It's more important to
