Thanks Christopher.

boot.local seems a bit iffy as the file says:

# Here you should add things, that should happen directly after booting
# before we're going to the first run level.

I'm not sure that's quite what's needed (although I'm not sure what harm 
it might do, either).

Perhaps I need to look at insserv with your script template suitably 
adorned with the appropriate comments.  Something I'll have to research.

... and I thought it was just a simple question.  Sorry guys.

On the bright side: if I ever get this sorted, I can add it to the 
documentation I'm supposed to be sorting out on Mono services.
