TIP #039: Be careful how you order pins on your connectors

Why? For example, you may want GND/PWR separate CLK signal from the others, it helps minimize crosstalk between signals on a cable. You may want to consider how currents will flow. You may want to prevent board damage when the mating connector is inserted the other way round.
