  Document all events (was: cross-comment events and *.conf files)

Status in upstart package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: upstart

  Finding where events are asserted and which *.conf files are sensitive
  to an asserted event is difficult.

  As a documentation habit, it would be good to have comments in both
  the *.conf files and the scripts that make assertiongs and the man
  pages for commands that assert events.

  For example,  /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf is sensitive to the events
  "filesystem" and "net-device-up IFACE=lo".

  I believe "filesystem" is asserted by mountall,
  "strings /sbin/mountall" shows me strings for virtual-, local-, and remote-filesystems which I see in /etc/init/*.conf files.

  I see the assertion for "net-device-up" in /etc/network/if-
  up.d/upstart .

  These linkages would be easier to track and maintain if   /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf  pointed to mountall(8) and
  /etc/network/if-up.d/upstart  and if  those would point at   /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf .

  It might be useful to add an  "assert"  stanza to *.conf scripts so
  the absence of a support file, especially when it is unique, would be
  noted in an warning message or even cause an error.
