Well... I already read LSB, but there's nothing about how it really 
interacts with the system. What does "default" mean here?
Does it affect update-rc.d?
Is it used when insserv is enabled?

I'd rather be sure that no-one will get startup links unwillingly, so 
I'd like to understand how it really affects things...
(For example: one installs athcool, does not create startup links and 
then installs and enables insserv...)
