Default Arrangement of Showreels

I'm just wondering, how do you guys arrange the work in your showreels.

Do you mix all your material up (having various shots from a project cut and mixed with all the other material, so you get to see clips from that project throughout the reel), or do you keep things in project order?

I like the idea of mixing the clips to keep people wanting more of something and to show variety, but if some of the material is vastly different, say a cartoon styled character animation followed by a realistic animation, or animation integrated into live action then wouldn't the jump in style seem quite drastic? Maybe that would go into your favour?

Any thoughts?

Yeah, but no but yeah but no....
