Do you still have LSB scripts on a machine thats using upstart?
On fedora they purged them all.

At any rate, I'm inclined to think that we're making an unnecessary
When we write LSB, we really mean "system services" and don't much
care if that means a SYS-V script, Upstart job or Systemd unit.

It also makes running mixed clusters needlessly painful.
Should we not treat LSB (or some new name) as an alias for whatever
flavour of init is currently in vogue for that distro?
Doesn't seem like it would be terribly hard to work out on the fly.
