/hurd/startup is the new /hurd/init, I merely renamed it to a) reflect
the fact that it is the server speaking the startup protocol, and b)
to free /hurd/init for a roughly sysvinit-compatible minimal init.

I must say, you have by far the oddest naming policies :D

That's odd.  Though I must admit I do not use passive translator
records to mount disks.  Maybe the Debian init scripts just aren't
compatible with that.  Personally I'd be ok with that.
