Dear all,

Here is an early version of runit-services package for testing purpose
[*]: (next branch)

I tried to follow the same design of orphan-sysvinit-script, but end up
with some differences:

* use dh-runit = 2.11.0 (in experimental) to build

* the package use per service-directories triggers, so only 3 triggers
  instead of one trigger for each service and no service name mapping,
  the expected outcome is similar to orphan-sysvinit-script:
  only relevant services are copied from /usr to /etc at first install;
  install (as first install) or purge of a single service when a
  systemd/sysv service appear/disappear

* doesn't use ucf to register conffiles in /etc : ucf works with files
  but not with directories, and I foresee other problems that makes the
  tool unfitted for handling service directories as conffiles.. so I
  had to reinvent the wheel :(

Comments and review are welcome.


[*] I'm already testing on my system
