Actually, I take that back -- it's not on the lenny RC bug list, so it's
possibly not an RC bug.  It would be if Policy and the release goals were
synchronized and the must stayed in that case, but it's ambiguous right
now.  If this truly shouldn't be RC, Policy should be changed to make sane
init script behavior a should instead.
