Well, the plans for the service program is to extend it to work with
both sysv-rc and upstart.  I do not really believe it make sense to do
the same for chkconfig.  Because of this, I believe it make most sense
for you to change the chkconfig package to drop the service command
and keep the chkconfig program in that package.

I assume you mean that chkconfig make less sense now with LSB headers
and insserv, as it need to change behaviour when enabling and
disabling services.  Perhaps it should be using the service command as
its backend?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
