I agree, it can get confusing when for example restarting some
services, I do restart, and for others I have to do the older
/etc/init.d/service restart. I miss the days when it was all uniform

Even if there was at the least, some kind of wrapper, so when I did
restart servicexyz, if that service wasn't upstartified, it just ran
the init script restart for me...
