Trigger execution order should be deterministic

Salesforce Platform, Apex & Visualforce, Application Distribution

When working in an org with a managed package installed, triggers you write should execute either before or after the managed code in a consistent way. Currently, we're seeing the order differ from object to object (some run before, some after). To make matters more complicated, if you install the same package and trigger in another organization, it may behave differently.

This makes writing a dependant package nearly impossible.

What would be best is to allow the developer of the trigger to choose the order of execution, but at the least, it should be consistent and predictable.
