But, if you want, you can register for yourself. You could define whether you want to come before or after other module's implementation (see weights.php in my sandbox for an implementation of this -- THAT is prior art :) ) and now with Merlin's idea you could define files as well. Yes, files, it needs to be an array for what I believe, obvious reasons.
