Yes and No. If I had to hack it in 'now', that is how I would do it. As
that is the last hook called _now_ prior to start.

But as we are still plotting and creating I'd like a clear place where the
server is completely ready to run, and about to run. And where I am sure
that all configuration details are set, correct.

Yes. Typical reasons are no resources, unable to get lock's, whatever.

Typically things which are _not_ config related and propably will require
either a Page to your system admin, a reboot of the machine or expensive
tuning consultancy.

The main reason for needing it, is that I'd like to start some background
collating and maintenance processes; but I want to be sure that I have
all config stuff is done, by everyone.
