invoke-rc.d was added to sysv-rc and file-rc at almost the same time, we
didn't botch THAT transition at all, thank you very much.
It is also available since oldstable, and a *requirement* of any initscript
system since stable. Any initscript package that does not provide
invoke-rc.d (and doesn't piggyback on the one from sysvinit or file-rc) has
a critical bug.
