Personally, it makes me extremely uneasy; who knows but what three
revisions from now, /etc/daily will do the same thing to /local too.
Or /home.  Or any other directory that looks safe now.  After /scratch,
my feeling is that anything that is not documented in hier(7) and has
not traditionally been cleaned out must be considered at risk, and that
covers almost every possible place to put things.
