on boot, my wireless card tries to initialize prior to wpa_supplicant 
running.  So my booting takes a long time while it tries to get an IP 
address (which it can't because wpa_supplicant hasn't run)

hydrogen:~# cat /etc/default/wpasupplicant
# /etc/default/wpasupplicant

# WARNING! Make sure you have a configuration file!


# Useful flags:
#  -D <driver>          Wireless Driver
#  -i <ifname>          Interface (required, unless specified in config)
#  -c <config file>     Configuration file
#  -d                   Debugging (-dd for more)
#  -w                   Wait for interface to come up

OPTIONS="-Dhostap -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -w"

Is there a way make wpasupplicant run earlier in the boot process?
