The .etc directory is intended to contain random system-related stuff, much like the unix .etc directory.

.etc.rc2 Program used to start up internal daemons in daemon mode. .etc.rc2D Daemons to start up in daemon mode. (Compare unix /etc/rc2.d) .etc.usr Queue of all users with running jobs. .etc.doz Job queue for sleeping jobs.
.etc.jb0 is an internal hack to avoid lots of special-case code
by ensuring that there is alway a valid "current job" while the server
is running, and hence an "acting user," "current object" and so forth.
Lots of server code expects this for bookkeeping purposes and such.
