Anything in /usr should depend on e.g. NETWORKING or similiar hooks,
which ensure that it is started late enough to not have to worry about
it. Splitting off into other directories adds a lot of head aches, since
you couldn't order anything from pkgrsc before base rc scripts, e.g. as
needed for postfix.
