I can't add much to the technical discussion but I remembered another  
point with LSJ. It uses lonely "hence" at the end of some entries,  
referring to the next entry. Maybe some other similar references to  
the previous or next entry. It means that changing the order may  
delete some of the original information, or even worse, make it false.
