This isn't very clear.  The OpenPGP standard doesn't specify a fixed
ordering for user IDs, so the order in which the user IDs for a given
key are written is undefined.  If they're written from a hash/map whose
ordering changes every time it's used (think perl's hashes), then the
same program can produce different outputs every time.  You probably
therefore should not rely on the order in which the packets are emitted.
