I would like to know if this is a real world problem.  Please provide an
example of a package where the init script actually comes from upstream
and is not maintained in debian/*.init and installed by dh_installinit.

Init scripts are inherent incompatible between distributions.  One
designed for RedHat or, worse, SUSE will not really work on a Debian
system, due to differences in used tools.  LSB tried to standardize
that, but this effort is dead as well.


Totally illogical, there was no chance.
