"epilogue" script?

Back in the olden days, we used to use /etc/rc.local as the epilogue
script.  You can still toss things in there, and I believe they will be
run, but that is no longer guaranteed to be the last of the startup
This has made me go and actually `man rc`  It is a really good man page,
and should tell you everything you need to get your own custom scripts
into the startup, but rc.local is still a quick and dirty place to just
toss a few command lines.
