One of the things which happens is #606588 because insserv doesn't do
#606593 yet. Also, #598020.
#606588 [i| |☺] [unscd] unscd: Uninstallable if NSCD already installed and using dependency based boot
#598020 [S| | ] [insserv] barfs when there are "invalid" init scripts
#606593 [i| |♔] [insserv] insserv needs to support multiple packages providing the same service
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.
