invoke-rc.d doesn't currently support the try-restart method which is what
is really required to support services configured in the "floating" state.
So if the maintainer is going to initialize the service in the floating
state then he must avoid using invoke-rc.d in his maintainer scripts.  (I
was assuming that he wouldn't want to run the initscript on upgrade.)  See
#243159 for background.
