Actually, the idea behind the filename is order_source_name, with
source being "exim4-config" for files installed from exim4-config.
That way, one can easily say where a file comes from.

So, you should probably be naming your files like order_local_name. In
any case, I would choose the order number in a way that this forces
the sort order of files. Since transport order doesn't matter, all our
files are at order 30.
