Well, for starters I don't grok perl, and I wasn't about to let that little
detail stop me from writing the sample code :-)

Also, update-rc.d and initscriptquery don't share much in the way of common
code, I think. I don't see any major advantages in merging the two, not to 
mention that it would generate a new interface for update-rc.d...

By keeping the two scripts separate, we avoid increasing the complexity of
update-rc.d and we also keep the two interfaces independent of each other.
