[New-bugs-announce] [issue18168] plistlib output self-sorted dictionary

New submission from halfjuice:

Even with OrderedDict, the plistlib will still output the dict in its own order. Search for sorted(d.items()) in plistlib.py and you will know why. It is certainly warm-hearted to sort this before putting it into plist file but I think sometimes we just want a customized order.
