I would like to see the elimination of "ENABLE"-style variables in
/etc/default snippets, to enable or disable initscripts, as a jessie
release goal.

These things are ugly, annoying hacks that try to work around the fact
that we can't ship initscripts which don't run at install time and/or
aren't enabled by default.

This end should point toward the ground if you want to go to space.

If it starts pointing toward space you are having a bad problem and you
will not go to space today.
