The votes on this are running two Nos and one neutral, and I was
wishy washy myself so this likely isn't going to happen. But let me
ask one final question. I note that I have trouble remembering
whether it's insertChild(0, node) or insertChild(node, 0). Is there
any reason for preferring one order to the other? Would it be any
more natural to put the index after the node rather than before? Or
is this just a pick one question where I should stick with what we've
