I am saying that people who *can't* read the sed regex syntax, shouldn't
touch Debian initscripts, yes.

Note that "can't" and "don't" are different.  If you "don't", and you need
to, you do some reading and learn it at least for enough time to fix
whatever you need to fix.  If you "can't", stay away from initscripts.

Now, commenting it would be a good thing, yes.
