If you're going to use a real scripting language to implement
initscripts, why not use one that is Essential: yes already? Try
'apt-cache show perl-base|grep Essential'. You'd still have to move it
to /bin rather than /usr/bin, though.
Also, I'm not sure whether moving away from bash and towards another
scripting language is going to really make it be faster. Anyway.
Fun will now commence
