The flip side of which, of course, is that you *can't* keep all the
information about it in a single file, a single well-localized place so
that you know when you want to fiddle your startup, you go there to do
it.  Instead, it's scattered all over hell's back acre.  When I need to
fiddle the boot scripts on IRIX, I usually have to resort to greps in
the rc*.d directories to figure out what to even look at.
