Well, than you should either declare it as an experimental init
replacement that people can use if they know what they are doing and
stop claiming it to be an equal init replacement, or write some
emulation for update-rc.d plus direct support for already installed

This method still sucks. What happened with those ideas about
integrating or developing an init program that uses a dependency map
between the init scripts, so the user can set priorities?! Ie. "start
SSH as soon as possible, including all required prequisites (networking,
hostname, firewall)" or "start mta, fetchmail and gettys as soon as
possible, other things can run in background".

What about using make for a such thing? I imagine something with make:


# yeah, make=essential ;)

all: fetchmail getty

getty: sane-state

fetchmail: networking
	/etc/init.d/fetchmail start

sane-state: mountall

sane-state: blockdevs

  lvm, mdadm, evms start scripts

  whatever you need



 - a directory containing parts of THE makefile, beginning with
	 01_header. A script merges them all to THE makefile

If someone wants to help a such beast, contact me. I do not have much
time in the next weeks, but I would like to have a makeinit.
