A patch for 40-systemd would be highly appreciated [1].

A few things which should be considered:

- It should work with both

#!/usr/bin/env /lib/init/init-d-script


if [ true != "$INIT_D_SCRIPT_SOURCED" ] ; then
    set "$0" "$@"; INIT_D_SCRIPT_SOURCED=true . /lib/init/init-d-script

Otherwise we need a flag day and convert all packages using
init-d-script at once.

- Older versions of sysvinit-utils (prior to 2.88dsf-59.11) did not use
__init_d_script_name=. 40-systemd should either work with older and
newer versions of /lib/init/init-d-script or systemd would need a
versioned Breaks: sysvinit-utils (<< 2.88dsf-59.11)

I would prefer if we can avoid the Breaks as those are prone to
complicate dist-upgrades.


[1] A MR via https://salsa.debian.org/systemd-team/systemd/ would be
even better
