Bug#830719: Document the removal of upstart, suggest switch to supported init

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

The upstart init system has been removed from unstable/testing, so it
looks like it won't be part of the upcoming stretch release.
I raised this issue on debian-devel [1] and one recommendation was, that
this fact should be mentioned in the release notes. We should suggest
that users switch to a supported alternative because post-stretch it's
likely that maintainers start removing native upstart jobs.
