The convention for Debian is to put an entry in /etc/init.d and then put a
link in the appropriate rc directory.  So for speakup, I have
/etc/init.d/speakup.sh, and a link to it from /etc/rcS.d/S11speakup.sh.  I
have it here because it needs to be after S10checkroot.sh which mounts the
proc filesystem among other things.  I guess it could be S10speakup.sh as s
comes after c, but I felt making it 11 would make it clearer and also avoid
potential future problems.
