Actually, they use the defined interface to init, so they should work
with any init that supports update-rc.d (per policy). The readme may
be overspecific on this point by referring to sysvinit.

Well, ideally init-functions should call some nice pluggable stuff for
the output logging, if we come up with an init logging policy for
woody+1 (it's been talked about, but nobody to my knowledge has said
"I have an implementation" that we can play with).
My gut feeling is that init-functions *itself* should stay in the lsb
package, because it has to conform with LSB practice. I really don't
think it's a good idea for $random_debian_package to use the LSB
interface, as it's pretty lame compared to start-stop-daemon.
