So here is one way to deal with this.  Write an init script that detects 
the remote database.  Make the local service depend on your init script. 
  This way when your local script detects the db, the dep will be 
satisfied.  I do not think it is necessary to build this functionallity 
into the init system.  The method I have outlined here should be plenty.
