I think this is a good idea. I recently set up a Debian potato system
to be a web terminal, thus I had to run a startx on boot. However,
/etc/init.d/rmnologin is by default run at 99, which is bad if I want
to have stuff happen *after* all other initalization.
My solution was to create /etc/init.d/local:
update-rc.d -f rmnologin remove
update-rc.d rmnologin start 98 2 3 4 5 .
update-rc.d local start 99 2 3 4 5 .
I just plopped my startx script into /etc/rc.local.
