OK, although both solutions work, (I guess - I haven't tried the second
solution) it still seems kludgy to me. If I use the debian supplied tool
to remove a service from startup _totally_, and I use a debian supplied
tool to update the system, shouldn't the latter honor my current config?
I don't think I should have to remeber to chmod this or fake out that. I
have no problems doing either, it just seems odd that the best system
update tool available can check to see if my conf files have been
modified and let me choose whether to overwrite, but it doesn't check to
see how I've configured services.
