Perfect Pangram "Alphabet"

It has become apparent [link] that the Latin alphabet is in dire need of re-ordering. The current ordering (A, B, C,...Z) has no merit over other arbitrary orderings (e.g., Q, W, E,...M), aside from being the marginally rhyming lyrics to a well-known song.

The only ordering that is not arbitrary or whimsical is a meaningful one.

       There are just over 400 million billion billion possible pangrams. At least one of them ought to make more sense than that one.

       Yeah but 99.44% of those have repeated letters. This one is "perfect".

       No no, there are 400 million billion billion possible pangrams containing each letter only once.   

       Several of them are Greek dentists.

       Oh, yes, indeed (26!). The Wikipedia page on pangrams looked Welsh.

       Welsh doesn't count - it's not really a language. Hidden microphones have revealed that the Welsh actually speak English when they think they're alone, and just make up random combinations of consonants and phlegm when they're being overheard.

       Still wondering who bothered to work out that "spoonfeed" is the longest word in English in reverse alphabetical order...
