We discussed this a couple of times already. I think dh_installsystemd
is only fixable by making invoke-rc.d a nop (using
--skip-native-systemd) and always generating start/stop/restart code in
dh_installsystemd for service with a sysv+systemd service file.

The sysv/systemd entanglement is imho not fixable if we have a single dh
helper. With dh_systemd_enable+dh_systemd_start we could dodge that be
moving the dh_systemd_enable part before the dh_installinit part.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
