And perhaps during that 48 hours, people who care about this will read
which provides the framework to solve all these problems without
requiring changes to existing init.d scripts and without inventing new,
half-thought-out "solutions". Both sysvinit and file-rc have implemented
invoke-rc.d, and many (most? all?) packages are using invoke-rc.d in
their maintainer scripts. All that remains is for people to implement
some policy-rc.d scripts to accomplish some common desired policies.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
