Why not?  Just because you're running more than one script at once, that
doesn't mean they can't still be ordered.

That is, we still don't want to start nfs until the network is up, but
is there any compelling reason not to start up irqbalance, pcmcia,
bluetooth, hidd, lm_sensors, smartd, acpid, messagebus, or haldaemon
before then?

That doesn't have to be the case; we don't need to run _everything_ in
parallel, we just need to delay whatever depends on our most latent
chunks, and run other things while we're stalling.
