Description

It would be nice to have an additional configuration option in ext_emconf.php which allows to define the loading order of extensions, without defining a dependence.

Currently it is only possible to influence the loading order by defining dependencies:

'constraints' => array(
'depends' => array(
'typo3' => '6.2.0-6.2.999',
'php' => '5.2.0-5.4.999',
'realurl' => '1.12.0-1.12.999',
),
),

This is not suitable for my situation, because my extension does not require realurl. But in case realurl is installed, my extension must be loaded after realurl to hook into realurl correctly. My extension also works together with other extensions (cooluri, dbal, ..) but it also works without all of those.

It would be nice, if I could define which extensions (if already installed) should be loaded before and which should be loaded after my extension.

Thank you for your attention.
