No problem, it certainly could use some more testing.  I'm sure some
of the shell code could also be a bit more efficient--I've nested
some conditionals where you could probably just use &&.

I don't know if you saw my comment in #debian-devel, but you might
want to also add
  Breaks: insserv (<< 1.14.0-4)
to debian/control to ensure it only runs "insserv -s" on a version
providing this option.
