I suggest putting the transliteration first for ease of sorting.

I reordered the AUTHORS file a long time ago and put it in that order
because it is less ambiguous.  Hungarians use last name first, many
other countries have this custom and we basically had a mixed order,
some names were written last name first, others first name first.

I can understand that sentiment very well.  As you can imagine, my name
gets misspelled all the time.
