Well, there are two things that need to be done as insserv work today:
- Call update-rc.d in dependency order when adding new scripts to the
boot sequence (one call is not going to work). It refuses to
install a script (and in consequence, the package) if the scripts
hard dependencies are not already inserted into the boot sequence.
- Refuse to install a package that introduces a dependency loop,
while allowing those that do not introduce a loop to install, to
avoid getting an unstable boot sequence (as in, there is no way to
know how to order the scripts involved in a loop).
I'm not aware of triggers being able to do that. Besides, one need to
be very careful when changing the boot sequence, to make sure the
machine stay bootable. :)
