/etc/rc.local and systemd

Hello, list.

I just thought I'd pass along something that I recently discovered.
When using sysvinit as the init system, if the file /etc/rc.local
exists and is executable, it will be invoked at the tail end of the
boot process.  But under systemd, this file is not executed during
boot.  Not by default anyway.  Here is how I enabled it.  (The
following commands are executed as root.)

cd /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants
ln -s ../rc-local.service rc-local.service

Now shutdown and reboot.  /etc/rc.local will get executed this time.
If this is the "wrong" way to do it, or someone knows a better way,
please let me know.
