Yes, we would sort based on the splittype() and default to a  
particular behavior ('join') if one isn't designated, maybe with a  
warning indicating the splittype() isn't defined.  Using an 'order'  
or other defined types could also delineate a default sort/nosort  
behavior (probably the previous as it would replicate prior behavior).
