Removing startup scripts

I poked around in /etc/rc5.d/ and saw that I had a few processes that 
were loading that I didn't need.  For example kvm was loading and I use 
Virtual Box.  So I figured I could remove some of the things I didn't 
need.  I did an apt-get remove kvm.  I haven't rebooted yet but I still 
see "S20kvm" in /etc/rc5.d/.  Is it safe to just remove these scripts?  
Is there an easy way to remove them from all run levels?  Shouldn't 
removing a package remove the associated init script?


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
