Make sense. Or depend on insserv (>> 1.12.0-10) to use the same
version number in the replace and depend. I commited the latter.

I'm going to ensure sysv-rc can be uninstalled and by assosiation also
insserv to be uninstalled. The migration we discuss here is partly to
make sure that can be done. Using insserv with sysv-rc is not going
to be optional, so this migration to dependency based boot sequencing
will be one-way.
I've implemented a draft of these migration changes in the insserv and
sysvinit svn. Please check it out at
