Is there a canonical way to check whether an iterable is ordered?

My function gets an iterable of an unknown type. I want to check whether it's ordered. I could check whether it's a `set` or `frozenset`, which would cover many cases, but I wonder if I can do better. Is there a nicer way to check whether an iterable is ordered or not? 


Thanks,
Ram.
