Mike did give that impression, which is what I'm argumenting against. My
reply to him was *not* an answer to your concerns, which I find *quite*
relevant [1]. My only point in this thread is that the claim "the
triggers enhancement which is needed for boot time improvements" is a
load of bullshit uttered by someone trying to make a point.


[1]  The important thing is that I believe that dpkg triggers have
     *nothing* to do with this switch - if the other (known and unknown)
     problems with insserv have been resolved, we should do it, no
     matter if dpkg has triggers or not.
BOFH #231:
We had to turn off that service to comply with the CDA Bill.
