I saw the article as well, but think auto-sorting would have just provided a thin mask over their serious data pipeline bugs.

Also, this isn't the only pathway to seeing file lists:  os.listdir, fnmatch, etc.

I say that we leave it alone and not unnecessarily introduce a breadth-first, recursive sort.  The reasons for the previous rejections still apply.  For the most part our tools that access os services only provide a thin pass-through and tend to neither promise nor do anything extra (even SQL only gives sorted data when the user explicitly requests ORDER By -- the could have provided a default sort but choose not to).
