Forcing a migration to upstart can not be reasonably done using only
the udev and module-init-tools packages as long as the sysvinit
packages are essential. The migration need to start by changing the
sysvinit packages, and I do not plan to do such change in sysvinit
before the upstart-job script is available and working.
