Please test dependency based boot sequencing

The dependency based boot sequencing is coming along quite well.  See
<URL:> for
status.  Several people are using it already in unstable, and it has
proven to boot. :)

There is unfortunately still quite a few packages missing dependency
information in their init.d scripts, and I have filed bug reports in
BTS for quite a few of them, but there is still a significant list of
packages left.  I very much welcome help with this work.

I track status in the insserv svn, available from
svn:// .  Run
debian/rules missing-overrides to extract the list of remaining
packages.  Here is the current list of scripts that need to be
reported to BTS.  The list of source packages and maintainers are
available from the status web page.  It is about 30% of the packages
with init.d scripts.

  Init.d scripts missing overrides and BTS reports:         236
