PyQt5 sections and keys are reordered alphabetically when using IniFormat
upon writing the file. This didn't happen with PyQt4. 

The PyQt4 Reference Guide explains: 

"The INI file format is a Windows file format that Qt supports on all
platforms. In the absence of an INI standard, we try to follow what
Microsoft does, with the following exceptions.". 

Reordering sections and keys is not listed among the exceptions. 


The badgers moved the goalposts. Who moved my cheese?
