Handling multiple reboots

I am trying to deploy an application that requires pre-install steps, a reboot, the app install, and another reboot. I typically would use an SCCM task sequence for this because of the multiple reboots; however, I wanted to see if there was a way to handle multiple reboots in the script. Any ideas or insight are greatly appreciated!

for the app model:
make the preinstall a dependency of the main install...

"what if I had 3 reboots"
the just keep dependency chain going... (I would just use a TS)

Package model:
I would guess you would "run this program first" for the pre-reqs
and then do the main install... (never tried this)
