That would satisfy me (having a clean seperation between system and local
scripts, raising visiblity), since I can accept making changes to the system
itself for anything more complicated (like a new version of named, where
named where named is truly a dependancy, for instance). Having some
subdirectories under /etc/rc.d is another scheme that comes to mind.
