I am now back home from Debconf, and could check the same number in
Unstable.  There are 843 packages with init.d scripts in Unstable, and
thus 44% lacking such header.

I've created
<URL:> to
track the status of this feature.  I hope it can be a coordination
point for the work on converting Lenny to using dependency based boot
sequencing.  The mailing list
initscripts-ng-devel at will be used for this
purpose as well.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
