I think this is the right way to handle the hostile behavior of some
maintainer: there is no need to wait third-party decisions and it's
always possible to move back the init script to the original packet

another viable option may be to create a package suffixed with -init,
which contains only the alternative init scripts and hooks, something
like network-manager-init
