True, but just using insserv will not fix this problem. As long as we
don't move away from the current update-rc.d API (which we can't in this
cycle [1]), we can also keep providing plain sysv-rc or file-rc.

I have to admit that I haven't followed the lists very closely in the
past months, but has update-rc.d2 (or something similar, just updating
the deps, without providing the numbers used for ordering) been
discussed?
