if you leave at least one symlink in at least one runlevel, even if
its a K link in runlevel 0 or 6 update-rc.d will refuse to add any new
links.  policy requires the use of update-rc.d so packages can't add
any links so long as you leave at least one.  if you find a package
that does otherwise thats a bug.
