If I consider afs as 'just another network file system', like nfs, smb, etc., 
I could use Red Hat's netfs init as a guide.  They start very early, before 
ntp (wrong IMHO regardless of whether it's afs or not), and not until level 3 
(wrong in may people's opinions).  The values in the RPMs should be based on 
the OS packagers definitions of what the run levels mean, not our own.  Are 
Red Hat's (and/or SuSe's) written down anywhere for us to reference?
