Good point. And since debian apparently uses only rc1 & rc2 this would
tend to suggest that the "debian way" is to use one of the other
runlevels.. or possibly better create an rc7.. for instance.. and
customize in a separate place altogether. I would imagine that

Maybe this is is the way the *nix designers initially wanted sysadmins
to customize the boot process?

That's my problem. I don't know debian and I just don't have the time
to learn it.
