update-rc.d and invoke-rc.d must work correctly with serel+sysvinit and with
serel+file-rc (maybe they already do -- I didn't check).

Also, the init script system cannot crash and burn when sysvinit+serel is
converted to file-rc+serel (or any other possible combination of the two) --
automated conversion would be nice, but it is not a must. As long as _no
data is lost_, and the user is warned.
