Could you provide examples please?  If there are init scripts which
it can't handle, that's a bug.  Either in insserv or (more likely)
the scripts.

This has been partly discussed in #594917, but you haven't
followed up there in response to the last comment.

Based on this bug, I think it's perfectly reasonable for sysv-rc
to manage the links; whether sysvinit is or is not running is not
part of the question here, IMO.  Given that systemd users are for
the most part going to be users migrating from a sysvinit/sysv-rc/
insserv configuration, it's not unexpected that insserv will be
managing the links.  systemd should be able to cope with
insserv managing the links shouldn't it?
