Well, the only "standard" I can think of is the LSB, and I don't see
anything about rc.local in the system initialization chapter.


And if it is a really widely accepted standard, then why would a huge
distro like SuSE decide to break it and call their file boot.local for
no reason whatsoever? I'm not saying we shouldn't do this, but I don't
think our system is broken if we don't.
