My point is that's it's not that hard to write and the dh-systemd would
benefit from such helper command. And if there's somebody willing to
rewrite it into perl dh_systemd_sysvinit command I would be happy to
help to finish it/debug it on my packages. The problem is that I touch
perl just in case of emergency and only in full hazmat suit, so somebody
would need to write the basis and I would be able to tweak it around.

Didn't know about that and it looks a tad bit more complete, but as I
said we need to make this command available in an easy way to the

My original idea was to write a simple drop-in shell script that would
be able to parse the .service file on runtime. That's still possible
with augtool, but you want be able to generate insserv headers on the
fly. I guess that's not a problem since most packages would be quite
happy with $syslog $remote_fs, but Provides: and Short-Description:
fields would be just wrong.
