Why is it just not systemd's default concept to run rc.local as the very
end step?  Seems like it would be easy for it to do.  Having to wrap
everything in additional constructs (because there's more than one
script so that means I have to make more than one of these unit files,
correct?) and get all their dependencies sorted seems much more
complicated than "put everything in this one file that we guarantee to
run once everything else has been run".
