Default D&D working up to a class

Okay, so there was a discussion over on Facebook about the first edition D&D Bard and how you had to take levels of Fighter and Thief first before you started Bard progression. I realized this was probably where the idea of prestige classes came from, and I was wondering if anybody had instituted a system like this for other "base" classes. For example, to become a Paladin, you had to take levels in Fighter and Cleric; for a Ranger, Fighter and Druid. I imagine a base spellcaster class of 2 or 3 levels before a caster decided which, if any, type of magic he would specialize in (Wizard, Sorcerer, Cleric).

Has anybody worked up a system like that in D20 or later?
