Oh, yes, completely agreed.

I think all we need is a new dh_installinit option, which simply runs

update-rc.d foo defaults
update-rc.d foo disable

before it runs invoke-rc.d.

The only new bits would be the call to "update-rc.d foo disable".

Should be a rather simple patch for debhelper.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
