(DAML API) exporting the ontology classes in predefined order

is there a way to export the classes in an ontology (with
org.daml.grci.daml.DAMLUtility) in a predefined order?

At present the classes are exported in alphabetical order which is quite
inconvenient for huge upper level ontologies.

It seems that the problem is not related to the underlying RDF API but to
the DAML API implementation of DAMLOntology using TreeMap - if this is the
case will there be a way ( for example to supply  an instance of
java.util.Comparator at ontology creation time) for the classes to be
ordered in a more convenient way?



"When someone is seeking, it happens quite easily that he only sees
the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to
absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking,
because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal;
but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. ..."
