It did!  Thanks!  For one thing now I see that I was barking up
the wrong tree in focusing on a canonical order, when, as the code
you posted shows, it is actually not required for hashing.

In fact, I'd come to the conclusion that frozensets had a consistent
order (i.e. frozensets that were equal according to '==' would be
iterated over in the same order), but now I'm not sure that this
is the case.  (Granted, semantically, there's nothing in the
definition of a frozenset that would imply a consistent iteration
order.)

Thanks again!
