At present, the standard way to control this to edit the symlinks (or
runlevel.conf, if using file-rc). This is good, because '/etc/init.d/foo start'
The standard for the future is invoke-rc.d. If a package doesn't support
this, then the thing to do is to submit a wishlist bug for invoke-rc.d
support, NOT create some new ad-hoc method.
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
