>From _The Quick Python Book_:

"The order of the keys in a list returned by keys() has no meaning -- they
are not necessarily sorted, and they do not necessarily occur in the order
they were created.  In fact, your Python might print out the keys in a
different order than my Python did.  If you need keys sorted, you can store
them in a list variable, and then sort that list."

Hope this helps.
