The outer join improvements are already in CVS HEAD:
If you test with CVS HEAD could you please post your results back here?
I know I'd be really interested in the results.

Ah, that's too bad. The one place where we've needed to care about
Hibernate's join order was at a place where our inheritance tree is
flat, which explains why this trick worked for us.
