And I'm a huge fan of having config files and all startups
guided by /etc/.

I HATE having to hunt around the disk to figure out why
that old version of pwcheck (whatever) keeps coming up.

So I'm hardcore that config files go in /etc/ (presume /usr/ and
down are shared between many machines; and are read only).
rc stuff?  I'll take /etc/rc.pkg.d/ or or /etc/rc.local.d/ over
