Yes svscan starts dnscache and exim, but many services depend on dns 
(dnscache is setup on loopback) so I have to wait (for up to 3 minutes) 
for dns timeouts to occour so that they boot can continue, and finally 
get to starting svscan (quite low in the dictionary order of things)

So I'm looking for how I can control the order that things start up in.

I've since changed the order by prepending 000, 010, 020, etc.. to 
startup script, but I just thought there was a way to manipulate it and 
not disrupt installs and plist related startup script.
