Currently upstart is being used in compatibility mode where it simply runs
the existing 'sysvinit' startup scripts, so it's likely that this still
works as expected (this would be a useful experiment to test if you have a
working setup).

When tasks move to native upstart configuration files then is sounds like it
will be necessary to add in this support;  yes, certainly, any more
(low-level) details about exactly what needs doing would be most useful.
