I have checked the scripts and I was very happy to see that lilo is
furthermore supported by initramfs-tools (script update-initramfs).
Can I be sure that this support stay in your package? Because of changes
in some other packages this would be nearly an existential question.

FYI: Lilo have again an upstream developer - myself. 
If you have some hints for better work together with your package so feel
free to send me a mail.

Have a nice day,
