Hopefully the PROVIDES/REQUIRES tags are *not* going to be required.
Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case yet (scripts with no tags
are always run first -- they should be run last instead).
It's not a major bug as long as $PREFIX/etc/rc.d stuff is always started
in a second loop after /etc/rc.d, but that's a bit of an ugly hack too.
