Actually, I would like to get my sysvinit port updated and integrated, with
the split up of the system dependent parts into a saperate package, as
posted and discussed in #43575 (2 years and 267 days old).
Almost three years ago I didn't continue to work on it because I was afraid
of getting the Depends and Replaces etc fields wrong for the smooth upgrade
from sysvinit to a sysvinit+initscripts package combination. When I mailed
Miquel for help on this, I never received a reply, so I put this issue
