Yes it is (set -x), but I meant invoke-rc.d anyway, obviously.

Simple separation of concerns, invoke-rc.d is responsible for running
the init script and determining if it fails and propigating a failing
exit status. debhelper allows it to do do. The right way to make 6 be
ignored is to get invoke-rc.d to ignore it, not add cruft to every
postinst that calls it.
