Tokyo conclusion: @nibanks wasn't even sure that this was still open.  There is a trade-off here between optimizing for reading and optimizing for writing.  There's an implementation overhead for things like RACK/FACK when reading in reverse order.

Closing on the basis that we don't have a very good reason to change.
