I had a very quick look, and have one suggestion. It is mentioned that packages
inserting multiple initscripts into boot system must do them in sequence of
dependency order. It could be mentioned that they should be removed in reverse
order to allow successful removal (debhelper >= 6 needed if postinst
update-rc.d calls are managed by dh_installinit and not manually).

Thanks, Kel.
