rc.local should support a runparts of rc.local.d
the current rc.local script that gets installed is difficult to work with.
For doing simple things like "i just want to run this at the end of boot", the 'exit 0' at the end means that human editing is almost required to do so without possibly breaking other content that might be in it.
ie, right now we have:
# some comments here
that makes it very difficult to add a command.
2 solutions for this:
1.) drop 'exit 0', its completely unnecessary
2.) support runparts
runparts means something that wants to simply add a script can do so, and it can easily be deleted.
