I'm not sure which you're contending
I'm saying there's no difference between hash and arrays expect in the order they choose to return their values. A hash could return its values in the same order as an array. And if it did, people would still ask how to sort hashes.
With which of these premises do you disagree?
Arrays have one intrinsic ordering. Hashes have zero intrinsic orderings.
So? Even if hashes had an intrinsic ordering, the same problems faced today would still exist. There's more to it than that, or the answer to the posts we see isn't "hashes aren't ordered".
