If you change the WantedBy target, you need to do that manually on 
upgrades, i.e. manually remove the old enablement symlink and purge the 
existing i-s-h state.

This happens rarely enough, that adding explicit support for that in 
i-s-h is probably not worth the complications.
That said, if someone can come up with a clean patch to do that, I'm 
happy to take a look.
