I agree with Dave, if we are going to support this there should be at
least one user of it. Are there any packages that either already ship
with their own sysctl file, or that would benefit from doing it?

If we are going to support a sysctl.d directory, I think we should do
it in exactly the same way as systemd does (being almost, but not
quite, the same would only be confusing):
