Maybe this will work.  This isn't code complete.

cfagent.conf 

    control:

        actionsequence = ( copy shellcommands shellcommands.secondrun )

    import:
        cf.solaris
        cf.dns

cf.solaris

    copy:
        [Code to copy file to /tmp/a]


    shellcomands:

        secondrun::
                echo "How are you today?" >> /tmp/a

cf.dns

    shellcommmands:

        any::
             echo "Hello World" > /tmp/a
