Adding a "initscripts" dependency to the udev package is clearly a bad
idea, since udev does not depend on the initscripts package.

There are couple of different solutions:
1) Ignore the issue. It's a warning only after all.
2) Add Conflicts: insserv to systemd-sysv, so the package is kicked out
on upgrades (and maybe add sysv-rc, startpar, initscripts to that list).
This would ensure that users of systemd don't end up with those packages
3) Add a initscripts dependency to insserv. If you are using insserv,
you probably want the facilities provided by initscripts.

Felipe, Martin, thoughts?

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