cms.utils.conf.get_templates order is not predictable #6706

When using CMS_TEMPLATES_DIR, the cms.utils.conf.get_templates function retrieves the list of templates using os.listdir, which, according to the documentation, doesn't guarantee any order. Should there be an file in the CMS_TEMPLATES_DIR listing the available templates, the order is not predictable either on Python 3.5 since dict order is not preserved. This can cause issues, for example in some 3rd party libraries that rely on the templates order.

Expected behaviour

The list returned by get_templates is predictable.

Actual behaviour

The order of the items in the list is random.
