Hey, I'm far enough down the list already...

More seriously, we do specify "rough alphabetical order[ing]"; there's
no need to point out this kind of thing.

(Although it might be worth it to change that to "no particular order"
so that adding someone is as simple as `echo "Some Human" >>
Misc/ACKS`.  We could always run random.shuffle() on the current list
so new additions don't look out of place ;)
