Well, there might be a difference in the indexes depending on the
order they are merged just because one is processed before the other.
But, IIRC the merging of the meta names uses the text name of the
metaname, not any internal number.  It's expected that the internal
number used to represent a metaname would be different in different

That is, if the order of the metanames in each index is different and
that causes problems then that's a bug.
