No, at least not at the moment. I suppose that if -r wasn't specified
that the code could avoid the sort for both the --files-from mode and
the normal mode where files are specified on the command-line. (We'd
have to do a version-check for backward compatibility.) It would also
remove the duplicate-removal checking, which can sometimes cause
problems, but since duplicate-removal was broken in all recent versions
prior to the most recent, it might not be that big of a problem. I'm
kind of ambivilant about adding this, though. Opionions?
