Ah, a second look uncovered it. LSB header parsing is enabled by
creating a flag file /etc/update-rc.d-lsbparse (or changing the
respective code in update-rc.d). We could actually do that for
intrepid, unless we will throw all of rc?.d/ away anyway in favor of
some upstart scripts.

In any case, the LSB headers should be changed accordingly in Ubuntu
and Debian (i. e. "Default-Stop: 1" instead of "0 1 6") and patches
sent to Debian should include this change.
