Those who do not _want_ this sort of thing are those who know what
they are doing to the extent that they can alter things as they see

Right.  /etc/rc should check for an /etc/init.d, and if it's there run
that and ignore /etc/rc.local.  If that directory isn't there, run
/etc/rc.local.  Does this sound ok?

It is assumed that there will be an entry in /etc/init.d/ which will
run /etc/rc.local if it is present in the first case above.
