post_syncdb signal and contrib.auth permissions

This is a feature request for contrib.auth's

In an app's, doing:

from myapp import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import Permission

def init_data():
    perm = Permission.objects.get(codename=<permission string for models.my_model>)

dispatcher.connect(init_data, sender=models, signal=signals.post_syncdb)

where <permission string for models.my_model> is something like "change_mymodel", will trigger a DoesNotExist exception on first run of syncdb.

The problem is that contrib.auth is receiving the post_syncdb signal before "myapp", and there doesn't appear to be a way to force myapp to be the last receiver of the signal. Changing the order of the apps in has no effect.

A suggested solution would be to add a new signal fired by contrib.auth after creation of permissions. Or am I missing an obvious way to handle after contrib.auth?
