and to add to bike shedding. If we have MODULE.h and MODULE.c., first thing MODULE.c should include is MODULE.h. This makes sure that MODULE.h has all the necessary includes to be included by itself.

I would also sort system includes last (e.g. with X11 header they would pollute your namespace and define things one should not define).
