[lug] debian and sysV init scripts

On RedHat I've grown accustomed to chkconfig --del <daemon> to remove
the links in the various run levels while leaving
the /etc/init.d/<daemon> script. I do this when I've installed a
package that I want to be able to start by hand and play with at various
times but that I don't want running by default.
I've tried to get update-rc.d to play nice, but it refuses to do
anything to the run level links when they already exist. According to
the man page for update-rc.d, this is by design. Is there another tool
to allow the manipulation of the links all at once or do I need to just
accept that on debian I'll need to use rm and ln to customize run level
startup once a package is installed?
