I haven't kept up-to-date with the latest upstart developments, so take
this with a grain of salt. As far as I know, all upstart events follow a
fire-once event model. And generally speaking, there is no sane way to
depend on an AND-combination of such events, since they will never occur
at exactly the same time. What you are looking for should be done with
states, not events.

For as far as I can see from the blueprint, it is intended to be
implemented for 0.5 but is not yet completed.
