OTOH, I like the variable sorting hack in ProPolice, and thought about
implementing it, but chose instead to concentrate on PointGuard, which
protects all of the cases that ProPolice variable sorting protects, and

I's not just a "hack" it's a great improvement that distinguish ProPolice
from Stackguard.
To be honest, it's the main reason why I migrated form SG to PP.
Beside that PP protects function arguments unlike SG!

To recapitulate: SG vs PP 0:2.
