Hmmm.  With slapd, for example, it's certainly possible where one scenario 
(slapd uses SQL database) directly contradicts another scenario (startup of 
SQL database uses auth info which is provided by slapd).

Not sure how a packager should deal with this.  (slapd being used only as an 
example.  Other scenarios for other services are certainly possible.)
