> There were two reasons `mask` was used here.
> 1. #722521.  Removing a package naturally deletes most of its files, including
>    deleting the systemd service unit.  However the system V init script is
>    preserved, because it might include user changes.  This can work OK under
>    system V init, but systemd also picks up the initscript, and will show it
>    as a started service in messages, logs, `systemctl list-units` etc.
> #722521 seems perfectly possible to resolve, without resorting to masking.
