The /etc/init.d/rc.local init script does nothing else then run
/etc/rc.local, in case this file is executable.

By using the native rc-local.service file, we avoid one bash invocation.
Not that big of a deal, but if we can avoid that, why not.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
