We have around 1100 packages with around 1300 sysv init scripts sourcing
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.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
