LexicalFocusOrder class

Can be given to a FocusTraversalOrder widget to use a String to assign a lexical order to a widget subtree that is using a OrderedTraversalPolicy to define the order in which widgets should be traversed with the keyboard.

This sorts strings using Dart's default string comparison, which is not locale specific.

Only orders of the same type are comparable. If a set of widgets in the same FocusTraversalGroup contains orders that are not comparable with each other, it will assert, since the ordering between such keys is undefined. To avoid collisions, use a FocusTraversalGroup to group similarly ordered widgets together.

When overriding, doCompare must be overridden instead of compareTo, which calls doCompare to do the actual comparison.
