Hmm. I have to admit to not being a Debian packaging expert but is this 
how things are meant to work? If I apt-get install apache2 or mysql, 
then by the time apt has done its work I have a running server.

So I think if we did this then we would want to default to START=yes or 
else lots of people would turn up on this mailing list saying "I just 
installed rabbitmq-server and nothing happened!". And if we do that then 
why not just use update-rc.d?

Cheers, Simon
