afaict: service is used to start upstart services, invoke-rc.d starts SysV 
init scripts. 

To my knowledge, the best option is to use dh_installinit -R for the 
init-script, as it will generate the correct code for SysV or upstart (given 
you use the debhelper token in the maintainer scripts).

Oh, just saw another thing while taking a glimpse:
        sed -i 's/\#includedir\ \/etc\/sudoers\.d/includedir\ 
\/etc\/sudoers\.d/' /etc/sudoers 

Please don't modify settings of a different package apart from the official 
interface (that is exactly what sudoers.d is for).
