This statement is incorrect. The current solution does update the
priorities for all three implementations [*], it doesn't preserve local
modifications though.

That's the pain of trying to support multiple implementations half-assed
instead of one fully.


[*] Although insserv determines the start priorities dynamically, it can
be necessary to use the remove + add approach, i.e. if you change what
runlevels a service is started or stopped. See also the discussion about
not stopping services in 0/6. If you remove those runlevels from
Default-Stop:, insserv will not automatically remove the symlinks from
those runlevels. I fwiw consider this a but in insserv, see #477415

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
