At least until stretch is released, and afterwards unless policy is
changed and/or the TC changes its decision.

Please do not pro-actively remove functionality. If an init script is
working fine, there is no reason not to keep it. If it isn't, you'll
probably get a bug report, and if it doesn't already contain a patch,
and you cannot act on it yourself, ask for help.
