test "/etc/init.d/MyPackage start" before shipping, please

I have an idea,
all /etc/init.d/ script packages should test to see they actually can be
started and stopped before their debs get shipped.
Hmmm, and all bin/ programs should given a test run too... to at least
see they can print --version without segfaulting etc.
Hmmm, all even more important than piuparts.
I mean it would avoid "show stoppers of the first degree".
