Good idea. I dunno whether i ever filed a PR about the existing one,
but i've definitely meant to. (reboot -> N messages. reboot -> N
messages again. reboot -> N messages again... all from the same set
of files. Bloody annoying.)

Assuming that that doesn't impair users' ability to get the files,
that's a good thing.
This type of thing is almost perfect for an rc.d scheme. seems a
shame to drop that script -- it is pretty much a standalone script --
into the middle of rc... makes versioning harder, etc. 8-)
