G-3180: Always specify column names instead of positional references in ORDER BY clauses.
If you change your
select list afterwards the
order by will still work but order your rows differently, when not changing the positional number. Furthermore, it is not comfortable to the readers of the code, if they have to count the columns in the
select list to know the way the result is ordered.
