Sure, I can appreciate that we still need the upgrade logic.
But, do we need the debconf question?  Surely we can just
migrate unconditionally (or attempt to, at least).

(I don't know if you saw my mail regarding having done this
provisionally in git; I mentioned it on the pkg-sysvinit-devel
list and in #545976.  I was wanting to additionally ask you
how safe it would be to remove the is_unsafe_to_activate check
and just run insserv anyway, and rely on insserv to fail if
problems are found.)
