        Description

        Currently, files in a directory are processed in the natural order provided by File.list. This can lead to non-determinism in a compilation, which can make it hard to track down file-related issues.

        We should have a hidden option to list the files in a deterministic order.

        e.g. -XDsortfiles[:reverse]
