your package resolvconf declares a versioned dependency on the initscripts
package. Most likely, it was added for the /run-transition in wheezy.  In any
case, the dependency is provided by a version older then what is provided by
oldstable. It should therefore be safe to drop this dependency.  This way,
users that don't need the initscripts package can remove it on their systems.
