Well what I wrote there is only half of the truth... because in Debian,
init-scripts are unfortunately and wrongly considered as configuration
files... and it's perfectly valid to remove a package but not purge
So people don't have to "break" their system to get in a situation where
they can end up in a situation where they execute
e.g. /etc/init.d/cryptdisks stop but their stuff is actually not
