I think you'd still need to sort based on line numbers, which requires
debugging information which is not always available.

The only reliable way I know is to use a JSR 269 compiler plugin.
Members are guaranteed to be in source order over there.  (But this
still suffers from poor IDE support, AFAICS.)
