      Description

      When rendering the <scripts>, <styles>, and <links> defined in *-themes.xml - the <p:theme /> tag appears to reorder the elements, specifically by placing all of the <link> tags after all of the script <tags>.

      It appears as though the PortalThemeMetaDataFactory.addChild() methods pull all of the scripts and styles separately.

      This is undesirable because theme authors should be able to control the order of their includes:

      1) Often, the order that CSS rules are included will affect how the rules are applied.
      2) The order of javascripts included can also affect behavior
      3) Rendering all of the scripts before all of the link tags can be a performance problem (see: http://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html#css_top)
