You're right, and this is similar to what Bruce suggests - the
bundle's initialization code can look for initializer services using a
whiteboard pattern, and call them before making the actual service

To answer Marcel's question about the use case, the app in question is
Sling-based and uses a content repository service. When upgrading the
app you might need to make some changes to the content before the new
version of the app starts working with the content repository. So yes,
making this part of the content repository service design makes
absolute sense.

David B's hooks suggestion also looks interesting, as a generic way of
talking to services early in the setup phase.

Thanks everybody for the pointers!
