Server may try to start modules in an order that won't work

                 Key: GERONIMO-3840
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 2.1, 2.1.1, 2.2
            Reporter: David Jencks
            Assignee: David Jencks
             Fix For: 2.2

The server is loading and then starting the modules in the order they are listed in the config.xml,
which is random.  The specific case I've run into where this doesn't work is when a builder
has a customized default environment set in config.xml.  The property editor that can deal
with this data type is installed in a gbean in geronimo-gbean-deployer: this module must be
started to register the property editor.  

If a module such as j2ee-deployer is loaded before geronimo-gbean-deployer is started, the
property editor will not be available.  Loading a module only loads, not starts, its ancestors.

The solution I've thought of is to sort the modules by dependency so dependencies are loaded
and started before the dependent module.  This seems to work fine.
