I was curious as to why shuffling of events with the same time-step
isn't optional. From reading the Schedule code, the sub steps with the
same time-step (and same ordering) are extracted into a bag and
randomised using the shuffle method.
In some situations, particularly debugging it might be preferable to
retain the order of sub steps from step to step, or even retain the
order in which events were scheduled.
Would it be possible to just add a flag which is set to indicate if the
schedule should be randomised or not, or does something else rely on the
assumption of random ordering.
