Imho it would be the most consistent way, to tell the users to disable
starting by removing the startlinks in /etc/rc.runlevel (or editing
/etc/runlevel.conf or with update-rc.d) and use

invoke-rc.d /etc/init.d/lprng start
instead of
/etc/init.d/lprng start

in the postinst-Skript. Or is invoke-rc.d yet only provided by file-rc?
