Bug#1031854: orphan-sysvinit-scripts: should cope with defective rsyslog-rotate

Package: orphan-sysvinit-scripts
Version: 0.13
Severity: important

rsyslog-rotate should HUP rsyslog as appropriate for the installed
init system. It doesn't, so orphan-sysvinit-scripts should work around
this on sysvinit systems, without causing problems on systemd systems.

The problem as a whole is RC, but it's not a fault in o-s-s; important
seems the right severity for this bug.

[I have a plan to do so, but wanted to record the issue in the BTS]
