I quite often use the SmallGroups library in GAP while collating lists

of graphs with various properties.

The questions are:

- is the order in which the groups appear arbitrary or are

there some principles underlying it? I notice that the

abelian groups don't seem to appear as the first few groups

of each order; this is mildly surprising for lists of groups,

but maybe there is a deeper underlying principle of which I

am not aware.- is this order guaranteed to remain unchanged (so that if I

refer in a paper to "the 5044th group of order 512" then this

can definitely be recovered by the future reader)
