I don't know. They existed long time before I started working on the 
build system. I believe they were an attempt to optimize the layout 
based on some test that ran years and years ago. It's likely that they 
do nothing (at best) or worsen performance (at worst).  Very few 
libraries has these reorder files any more. If you think you need to 
update one, I think a reasonable course of action is to remove it instead.

Maybe Claes can help me confirm my speculation about performance..?
