This bug was reported to Debian but I feel it should be fixed upstream.
Adding logging in th init script itself would require adding additional
dependencies to the package and not be as convenient.

It would be nice if the init.d script could add some statements in the
system log on startup and shutdown.  For postfix, postfix-script (called
from the init script) uses:
starting the Postfix mail system
stopping the Postfix mail system

These are useful; one can start the daemon and check that it's initialized
(netstat works as well, I suppose, but this is still useful docco).
