I find this hard to belive, since Miquel van Smoorenburg is the author of
sysvinit and also happens to be the debian developer in charge of it for
debian. And the upstream sysvinit package happens to build into the debian
package with absolutely no modifications, in fact.

Not hard at all. We do that. Take a look:

You will find all of debian's sources on sunsite, in readily available
.tar.gz form, or as standard diff's if we needed to make patches.
