From your message I can't exactly tell why we can't have it for
Squeeze. My personal experience is that I've been using
CONCURRENCY=makefile since several months now, and I've never run into

Can't we just make it the default for Squeeze? (which would presumably
mean changing the default *now* in testing to seek the most feedback
possible before the actual release) If not, do you have a list of bugs
that block us from doing that? Or comments from the release team that
consider that not appropriate, or ...

The init.d world has changed quite a bit in recent years and might
change even more in the next, it is possible that for Squeeze+1 we'll
want to be elsewhere than at CONCURRENCY=makefile.
