TL;DR any comments on v 0.03 of 
https://salsa.debian.org/matthew/orphan-sysvinit-scripts before I upload it?

Notes on what I included below:

I couldn't find one in the Debian repo, so took the Devuan one.

This is built with --enable-systemd so I'm guessing doesn't in fact work 
now regardless of init script? If that's wrong, happy to add it.

I'm not sure what package is meant here (there isn't a pdns package in 
unstable) - if you mean pdns-recursor, see my question above?
