  Description     : Generate boot sequence based on LSB init.d
                    script dependencies

Reorder the boot order based on init.d script dependencies as
documented in LSB comment headers in the script or in override files
included in the package or in /etc/.

This package is useful for checking dependencies between init.d
scripts, and also to reorganize the boot order to fulfill
dependencies.  By using this script and a modified version of sysv-rc
to run non-depending scripts in parallel, I was able to speed up the
boot process significantly.

To get this working when most init.d scripts in debian lack dependency
information, the package includes override files with proposed
dependencies for several of the packages in debian.

A draft version of this package is available from
