Thanks for this!

I read the reactions of Michael and can't believe this. It appears to me 
that he is not willing cooperate even a single bit at all. Without 
justification. I just maintain a package and am not Debian process who 
went through the new maintainer process, but from my understanding what 
it means to maintain a package, I'd not do this.

I made a not to test your change with the init script, but did not come 
to it. Anyway, reverting a patch that removes a init script should still 
produce a working package.

I am not commenting on the bug report for now as I am not sure it would 
be helpful what I would currently feel like writing there.
