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'
still works.

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.
