wouldn't that be better done in start-stop-daemon?
have start-stop-daemon call query-rc.d or whatever it's called to find
out if the run-level is appropriate for starting the daemon.
if we change start-stop-daemon to support this then *all* init.d scripts
immediately support it without any further changes.
btw, this implies the need for a --force option to start-stop-daemon
and/or init.d scripts so that the admin can manually force a daemon to
be started no matter what the run-level is.
alternatively, dpkg could set an environment variable so that
start-stop-daemon could tell whether it was being invoked explicitly
from the command line or from a dpkg/apt-get install run.
