   Yeah.  Actually, since I'm just using dhclient, I could probably  
even just do it in the dhclient-exit-hooks script.  I was just  
wondering if there was any built in way to, during boot, just say  
"these interfaces need to come up after the dynamically configured  
ones".  It would be useful for tunnels, and other such things.

   Thanks...  I may take a look at putting it in dhclient-exit-hooks,  
for which it only needs to do it the *first* time.  Not sure how to  
trigger on that, but.  Or I may just bail and fall back to my /etc/ 
rc.d/network-late from my old system.  :-)
