My main idea (with or without trasition plan) is to have an option (for
example --no-oknodo) in lenny allowing maintainer to tell he wants the
current behavior of start-stop-deamon.

Whether warning are generated or not, bugs filled or not, lintian complains
or not, default behavior changed or not, ... is not really important for my
point of view (and can be decided after lenny) *iff* the option already
exists in lenny (else, we will have to wait for lenny+1)
