Resources Not Emitted in Order Specified

When generating the page HTML for a Skuid page, CSS & JS resources not not being emitted in the order specified in the page definition.  I have not tried all combinations, but one specific example is that external resources are being loaded before inline resources even if inline resources comes before external in the list of resources.

As we all know, the order of loading is extremely critical to proper page function.  Order is respected in some cases (e.g. external resources are emitted in their defined order) but not all.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create page from XML below
2) Preview page picking an account
3) Review the page source looking for fakefile.js & fakefile.css

Expected Behavior
The inline JS & CSS should come before the external resources

Actual Behavior
Inline JS & CSS always come last

Sample Page XML
<skuidpage unsavedchangeswarning="yes" personalizationmode="server" showsidebar="true" showheader="true" tabtooverride="Account">   <models>
      <model id="Account" limit="5" query="true" createrowifnonefound="false" sobject="Account" adapter="" type="">
