    Subjectdirectory order of files
    With Linux ext2, and some other systems, when you create files in a
    new directory, the file system remembers their order:

    $ mkdir new
    $ cd new
    $ touch one two three four
    $ ls -U
    one two three four

    (1) Is there any standard that says a system should behave this way?
    Is there any software that depends on this behaviour?

    (2) Are there Linux file systems that don't work this way? Maybe
    someone with a mounted writable reiserfs could do a quick check.
