Seems like the sysvinit-maintainer is listening to the needs of other


I have split up sysvinit into three packages:

- sysvinit
- initscripts
- sysv-rc

This is so that BSD and the Hurd can easier replace just the parts
they need, probably just initscripts and sysv-rc, and so that
alternative systems like file-rc can be dropped in easier.

I did not look any further into the technical part of this split, though.
