FWIW, the Right Way to do this is probably to add ghost file support, as
seen in RPM, to dpkg. Then transient files created during package
installation can be registered with the package manager, and
automatically cleaned up on removal, as well as being queryable.

However, I don't know how that would interact with dependency based
init, which reorders the rc?.d symlinks all the time.
