The directory belong to the sysv-rc package, and will be cleaned up
when that package is removed. :)

We discussed on IRC to remove files from there when update-rc.d is
asked to remove symlinks to a script, and if we decide to implement it
that would solve the piuparts issue.  Thanks for bringing it to our
attention. :)

Happy hacking,
