I think your assumption is probably false.  There are maintainer scripts in
pacakges for a reason.  There are init scripts.  I'm surprised I have to
explain this to you.

I also wonder how many participants in this thread who have voiced valid
concerns also have an idea for how to go about solving those concerns, but
are too interested in tearing Robert apart than offering useful advice.

This thread scored 3 Trogdors out of a possible 5 in flamability.
