I disagree. I have a number of server packages installed on my
personal laptop for the sake of having the docs with me. I am,
however, fine with using update-rc.d or $EDITOR /etc/runlevel.conf
to accomplish this.
My beef is that I want to be able to prevent a newly installed
package's postinst from starting the service (for example, because I
know that the service needs configuration before it can be started for
the first time, or because I know that this service is probably never
going to run on this installation).
 Thanks, Roland, for file-rc, which is really great
