Fortunately Debian & Ubuntu already have several tools to do that (as
that manpage says), it's just that 'update-rc.d' is *not* that
tool...  ;)

But I'm always surprised why so many people (including some Debian
developers, long-time Debian admins and book-writers) think
'update-rc.d' is the tool they need, while its man-page and other
documentation includes such clear warnings against it.
