The order of the options is not the problem. You load the drivers in
any order. If there is a problem with the drivers when they are not
working when loading them in a specific order, it is a bug.

Not that I know of. Please file bugs. Currently the Hurd CVS and the
Hurd package of Debian are in sync for libcons, console and
console-client. If they are bugs for the console (or something
closely related), please assign them to me. If no one tells me about
bugs, I won't fix them. If no one files the bugs properly I will most
likely forget about them.
And please test stuff. All features should work. but I have not
tested stuff like the serial mouse or other mouse protocols than
PS/2. Neither have I tested starting the console from a init script.
If something does not work it is a bug. The worst thing we can do if
it is not a bug but filed anyway is closing it. :)
