Yes and no ;)

By default it's total replacement of old init system. It comes with its own
starting scripts by default. And they're very "gentooish", but hey.
all this packaging is about to integrate it with Debian.

tweaking cause we don't have any dependency information in them.

Its starting scripts keep information about ordering. I suppose that for
now it will be packaged to be used as a total replacement of our init
system. But maybe some minor changes in our init.d scripts policy would
allow us to use it with Debian scripts.

We'll see. I'm quite busy now with my exams so I didn't look much into the
