It's a waste of time, for no technical benefit. If we have to change the
name anyway, then choosing a better name is worthwhile, but we don't need
to change the name, so we shouldn't go around deprecating every single
script that manages init.d scripts, and confusing all the developers
and admins who've already taken the time to learn how update-rc.d works.
