The rtree can have different internal structure depending on balancing
algorithm and the order of inserts. So unless you know that values are
always inserted in the same order it's impossible to guarantee that the
structure is going to be the same. Then the order is also determined by
the internals of the iterator, how exactly the rtree is traversed, how
nodes and values are prioritized based on distance. And yes, currently
heap and sort is used and I plan to replace sort with minmax heap for
performance. Neither of these is stable.

But I don't understand what do you mean by "each run" and "stable
order"? What the stability refers to? Could you give an example?
