This is because the flist gets sent as it is created, so it is sent
unsorted.  Without this rule it would be necessary to wait until the
list had been fully read from disk and sorted before it was transferred,
making the use of time much less optimal (it's better to have the disk
I/O and network I/O overlap rather than be consecutive).
