when using ordering within the definition of a pure function and applying this pure function within the definition of another function, which is to be minimized, I have the problem, that the ordering does not only order according to numeric values, but the ordering is already executed on the names of the arguments (probably using some canonical alphabetical order). Does anyone know of a way  to suppress this behavior? May be by changing the attributes of the arguments?
