Allow me to hijack this thread a little further, but every time people 
mention dependancy based init scripts this thought pops into my mind. 
Isn't make built to handle dependency things like this? I'm very 
amateurish in both programming and scripting but my understanding of 
make suggests to me that it is capable of something like this. I could 
easily be wrong, though, as this is barely-charted water for me.
