oh okay, forgive my ignorance of that matter

if that is so and policy-rc-d is applicable to both systemd and non-
systemd situations, then perhaps live-build and debootstrap should
consider dropping the 'move start-stop-daemon' solution as redundant?
the original author of live-build left the project so can't be asked
why it existed (git hostory did not help much when I previously looked)
and I am ignorant as to whether it serves any other purpose than being
an older (?) secondary solution for the same thing... I could discuss
it with the current maintainers; if anyone has any useful info to
support it being unnecessary that could be helpful in any such proposal
of removal (I'm currently doing a lot of live-build contributing)...
