For symlinks? I doubt it. There are two things to worry about: one is
where the symlink points, and the other is what it's called. sysvinit's
symlinks don't generally change where they point, but do change what
they're called (S30 -> K20 eg). I don't think renames like that are
something you can reasonably handle in a conffile-esque manner.
