I was about to replying exactly that, only not so well written :-)
In addiction to that, generally speaking, I was asking two things, one was if
a policy could emerge to sort the init issues, the other point is regarding
debhelper, maybe should I file a bug for the problem of debhelper hiding the
sysvinit script if an upstart job is available?
I have some doubts because the two questions are related and it is not
properly a bug, more a wanted design derived from an hint as it is now.
