Makes sense that tmpfiles.d comes from systemd, if he's trying to get
away from shell scripts. But for those who think it's annoying to have
to put 3 separate steps in your init script 'start' section (mkdir -p,
chown, chmod), I'd like to point out that you may as well just use
install -d, and do it all in one step.
Not to say we _can't_ adopt the tmpfiles.d approach, just that doing
this sort of thing inside your init script need not be painful.
