/etc/rc.d and RedHat compatibility
For the short term, I will provide a redhat compatibility package that
provides the symbolic links, etc., so that redhat packages will work
on Debian systems. Thus, the ugly symbolic links will only be there if
you ask for redhat compatibility. This is preparatory to arriving at some
sort of way of merging our binary package formats, or at least installing
both kinds of package on one system.
