[PetiteCloud] is the rc.d the right place to load kernel mods and make bridges?

If all the "prep" work is done ahead of time when the host boots then it 
will make booting guests faster as the host is ready for them. Also if 
you add a bridgeNic only when an instance is started and none are set to 
start at boot and the user isn't aware that it will be added it may 
cause issues with custom networking on the host. If that makes sense.
