I am very surprised that you advocate the use of init scripts over
declarative systems such as Upstart or systemd. On debian-cloud
we are just having a thread about the init-scripts of cloud-init,
which are being rewritten from scratch for Debian, because the ones
in the upstream sources "are for CentOS".
cloud-init-0.7.2 $ wc -l systemd/* upstart/* sysvinit/*
Doesn't that underline that "classical" init scripts are a big waste of time
for maintainers, and a workload that can not be shared between distributions ?
