What about /etc/modules processing?  IMHO it really should be done *before*
udev tries to coldplug, to give the local admin a well-known and very easy
way to load some key modules in the order he wants them loaded.

I just moved S20module-init-tools to S03 (udev is at S04 here), and my
network adapters were brought up in the order I wanted them to.

Yes, I *am* aware I can move interfaces around later or even do intelligent
interface renaming based on MAC addess, etc. But this is orthogonal to the
issue at hand.
