[Python-Dev] Order of Fixers

At the moment, fixers are run in alphabetical order -- but this poses  
a problem, because some depend on others (for example, fix_print will  
need to be run _before_ fix_future, because fix_print looks for the  
'from __future__ import ...' statement.

I'm tempted to simply change fix_future to fix_zz_future... But that  
has some obvious drawbacks.
Alternately, if future is the only dependent module, it might be  
marginally cleaner to simply special-case it in  

So, any better suggestions?
