They're run in alphabetical order, according to your locale.  Important if your locale has some weird rules like mine, where the alphabet goes

... E F G H CH I J K ... and so on.

So make sure you preface your rules with the right numerical sequennce WRT the other rules.

On another genric none, I put all my myth device symlinks into /dev/myth/...

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  7  2. úno 16.35 dvd -> ../scd1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  7  2. úno 16.35 dvdrw -> ../scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14  2. úno 16.31 ttyTV -> ../usb/ttyUSB1

(I use /dev/myth/ttyTV to control the TV; it has a serial port.)
