I have seen a number of times this happening, because the list
isn't in alphabetical order people aren't able to easily read if an
#include ... is already there or not.

And so one header file is included multiple times. Because git diff
only shows few lines above and below a change, even people can't
catch it in reviews. That's why they must always be in alphabetical order.
