Although the implementation would be a bit hairy, I think that what
you've proposed is the best solution. That said, rather than just
blindly append the deamon to the end of the line, you could check the
order of daemons based on the service resource subscriptions...but
that would make it a bit more complicated. The actual manipulation of
the array could be handled by Augeas, since Puppet uses that already.
Overall, I don't think you'd want to invent an alternate syntax/means
of configuring daemons that would only apply to Puppet-managed boxes.
