It won't, but thankfully there are fewer and fewer packages that don't
follow the recommendation of Policy[1]

If you find such a package, please file a wishlist bug against it
requesting that the follow the recommendation of Policy not to call
the init scripts directly.

A people living under the perpetual menace of war and invasion is very
easy to govern. It demands no social reforms. It does not haggle over
expenditures on armaments and military equipment. It pays without
discussion, it ruins itself, and that is an excellent thing for the
syndicates of financiers and manufacturers for whom patriotic terrors
are an abundant source of gain.
