Before you go too far down this path, I'd like to suggest that you do
something which makes it possible to provide init system configuration
for other than sysvinit, at the same time.  And that you use an
arrangement which uses a non-forking startup protocol for the daemon.

I think the best approach would probably be to automate the generation
of init scripts in debhelper.
