Yes, this also means that if we have to modify the generation process
somewhat (e.g. because of a bug, may it be in the generation script
for a particular init or in our meta-init handling code), we'd need to
rebuild all the packages that include an init script.
So it's a bad idea to do it at build time, but doing it at install
time is the way to go.
