Easier instead would be to rename your current jobs in reverse order 0 to 9, a to z. Added advantage is it doesn't break compat with run-parts.
Or use the method used by some distributions to specify the order in which system services should be started. That is, put the scripts in a directory (or leave them scattered all over the place), and create another directory with symbolic links to the scripts to be run using names (usually starting with a number are a single letter and a number with leading zeros) that, when ordered, specify the proper sequence.
For example, on Fedora the service startup scripts are kept in /etc/init.d/, and the links to those scripts -- for each run level -- are kept in /etc/rc.d/rc[0-6].d. Fedora actually uses two different single letter prefixes -- "K" for "kernel" services (loaded before the kernel is started) and "S" for "system" services (loaded after the kernel is started), but that's probably an irrelevant detail.
