[development] Ordering of javascript includes in $head tag

Hi folks -- I'm currently coding a public theme that makes use of the 
nifty corners technique to generate image free curved corners. However, 
I've run into a *critical* problem. When I hardcode the additional 
javascript inserts that are required into the html head, all possible 
variations of ordering the $style, $head, and the hardcoded include  
fail to work. The only way I've been able to get around this as of now 
is by removing the head and style tags, and pasting this hardcoded mess 
(includes in questions are on line 4,5):

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<base href="http://www.telecommunity.us/tispa/" />
<style type="text/css" media="all">@import "misc/drupal.css";</style><style type="text/css" media="all">@import "modules/dashboard/dashboard.css";</style>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/curved_slate/nifty.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/curved_slate/layout.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="misc/drupal.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="modules/event/event.js"></script><style type="text/css" media="all">@import "modules/graphstat/graphstat.css";</style>
<script type="text/javascript" src="misc/textarea.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="misc/collapse.js"></script>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="misc/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<style type="text/css" media="all">@import "themes/curved_slate/style.css";</style>
<style type="text/css" media="all">@import "modules/event/event.css";</style>

The two javascript includes apparently need to come before misc/drupal.js for the nifty corners technique to work. Any ideas on a cleaner
way to include the javascript in the right order without breaking module's ability to extend the template?
