It has nothing to do with registration ordering, but using the proper API.
If you look at the RPackageOrganizer registrations in 
RPackage-SystemIntegration, all they do in the action block is send self 
a message.
Instead of:
         when: SystemCategoryAddedAnnouncement do: [ :ann | self 
systemCategoryAddedActionFrom: ann ];
you write:
announcer on: SystemCategoryAddedAnnouncement send: 
#systemCategoryAddedActionFrom: to: self

It also has the added benefit you can make them weak if you want :)


And ugh, why the Announcement at the end of the Announcement names? :/
