Then use rcconf which has less dependencies (perl and whiptail).
It does exactly as suggested above:
* remove existing symlinks
* add stop with priority 0
* remember original priorities when enabling them later on
And the last point is actually very convenient. So I don't really see
the added value in a disable function for update-rc.d, because
update-rc.d doesn't remember the priorities.
