Hi someone,
The old "default alphabetical order" gotcha, huh? Well, let's just turn 
the table on that there sneaky varmint.

1) I reckon that the old woman (the crone) who sets up this table is 
always gonna do it that way, 'cause ya cain't teach an old crone new tricks.

2) We'll make up a little vector of numbers that'll recombobulate the 
table, and we won't tell the old crone.


3) Then we'll feed 'er right into pie3D just like this:

  main="Yer table recombobulated")
