I had another look at the package. In debian/crtmpserver.install, the
package installs crtmpserver/crtmpserver.lua ->
etc/crtmpserver. However, this configuration file seems horribly
specific to me; i.e., we can safely expect that every user *will*
definitly want to edit and adjust the contents. This also means that
dpkg *will* prompt on every package upgrade that changes anything in the

Sorry, the more I think about it, I come to the conclusion that

 a) we should not install the config file to /etc/
 b) not install the init script
 c) not create the system user

This will reduce a lot of complexity in the package, which wouldn't help
our users much anyway.
