I don't have any objections against chkconfig being packaged for Debian.
I simply wanted to know, why Peter considers it superiour to other
alternatives and if I should reconsider using sysv-rc-conf (which I have
used and recommended to others up until now).

If insserv is really enabled by default for lenny, and chkconfig is the
only tool working properly with insserv, then we should recommend
chkconfig over other tools.
