Do you realize that dictionaries or hashtables don't have the concept
of ordering? Therefore, you'll have to parse through the hashtable
once, sorting the keys like a list and then parse it again, looking up
the value for each key in the sorted list.

Simple extrapolation of the above solution. Terrible design to begin
with though.
