The docs for 'xml.etree.ElementTree.ElementTree.write' in Python 3.7 (and possible earlier) does not say a word about the ordering of the attributes.

This makes unittesting hard.

But looking in the code tells me that the attributes are ordered lexically. Important to know. So please upgrade the docu about that.

In Python 3.8 the ordering behavior changed again but is mentioned in the docu. So no need to change in 3.8 or later.
