Ugh.  I tried something like that, and it still didn't help-- what I need to 
run prior-to is in an imported file.   (The "imports always run last" thing 
makes me nuts-- it isn't really last, and since it is outside of the 
actionsequence you can't control *when* it runs.)

So it looks like this:

cfagent.conf
                |
                |- cf.import1
                |               \- Run MyModule which sets "MyModuleRan" class
                |
                |-cf.import2
                                \- Something that depends on "MyModuleRan"

What I was hoping was that dotting the clas sonto the module action line 
("module:MyModule.someclass") would cause the reset of cfengine to get the 
hint that this class's dependencies must run AFTER the module.  That doesn't 
seem to work.

Of course, the *real* fix would be if things just ran in the place where I 
asked them to run.  I'm once again a victim of the multiple passes....
