Unfortunately this wont work.. There's no guarantee of ordering during
save. It's quite possible that a Load/Save sequence (without any other
changes to the
data) will NOT necessarily produce the exact same bit-for-bit version of the
datafile. The objects could have a different order within the XML
document. So, this kind of comparison can't be done (easily).
