I had to use many diverions in the module-init-tools package because
there was no other acceptable solution, and it's not pretty.
Please do not accept to be defeated yet, diversions are only a
workaround which makes maintaining the package much more complex (look
at the list of diversions-related bugs in the m-i-t changelog...).

I do not think that an upstart package using diversions should ever be
uploaded to unstable, and definitely not enter stable.
