        solutions to these problems.
Also no mention was made of backwards compatibility.

Perhaps there could be some way to indicate that "order does not matter" for a certain group of commands. Not that this particular solution would be great, but what about something like (not real code):

  "net-snmp" elsedefine=no_rpm_net_snmp

    "up2date net-snmp"

  /to from=/somewhere/else

  /etc/snmp from=/proto/etc/snmp

So all the stuff inside the "unordered" area can be run whenever (e.g. in many separate threads), but the rest of the file is run according to actionsequence.
