I'm not excited about backporting this change to Python 3.8 and older. Python 3.8 also switch to its feature freeze for Python 3.8.0. This change is borderline between bugfix and feature. In case of doubt, I prefer to do nothing.
In particular, I sort the source list by age when working on larger extensions, this makes sure that the source files I edited last get compiled first, which speeds up edit/build cycles.
On the one hand, this sounds creepily like https://xkcd.com/1172, but on the other: why do we need to sort those extensions by name? Wouldn’t sorting by some attribute of those extensions (including their size) be better?
