We have around 1100 packages with around 1300 sysv init scripts sourcing /lib/lsb/init-functions. lsb-base has 462 rdeps. So, roughly speaking, we'd have to touch 600 packages. That's quite a bit of churn. I wonder if we couldn't just generate the lsb-base dependency and inject it via misc:Depends. Say via dh_installinit or a separate dh helper. This would have the benefit that in the hypothetical future, where lsb-base is merged into init-system-helpers, we wouldn't have to touch all those packages again.
