You can have as many dependent parts of a single service currently, but
not between them:

  <service name="1">
     <script name="ftp" file=...>
        <script name="httpd" file=.../>
     </script>
  </service>

If you have RHEL4.5, you can also put all the scripts at the top level
to ensure the same ordering:

  <service name="1">
     <script name="ftp" file=.../>
     <script name="httpd" file=.../>
  </service>

However, you can't do something like this right now:

  <resources>
     <script name="ftp" file=.../>
     <script name="httpd" file=.../>
  </resources>
  <service name="1">
     <script ref="httpd"/>
  </service>
  <service name="2">
     <script ref="ftp">
        [some magic stuff to wait for service 1]
     </script>
  </service>

There's partial (read: demo) code in head CVS which implements higher
level dependencies, but it is integrated with the rest of rgmanager
yet.
