I correct this.

Well, if I need to perfectly know a build system, I would not be able
to use any of them. Moreover, from the bug report, this seems to be a
bug from debhelper (but it would be fixable in my case, since the stop
action does not call a python script).
But I get the point and fixed this problem by not using dh_installinit
and invoking rc.d "by hand".

I have also changed the default to yes. I don't see any valid reason a
user would install sshproxy and not launch it. Most daemons are
packaged in a way they are automatically launched in Debian. One
exception is rsyncd that comes with rsync package and most users are
not interested in the daemon.
Do you really think I should add a debconf question about this ?
Thanks for your feedback !
