Well, there was some user discussion on the forum a couple months back and
I've always felt 'service X enable/disable' was the right way to do things.

I recently reworked the snort3 package and added "enabled" to its config.
I felt then (and still do) that this is sort of a "hack around a bug",
and would rather see it addressed as part of sysupgrade's backup/restore

I'm a definite +1 on your current patch for sysupgrade, it looks like 
an elegant, unintrusive and robust means for dealing with service state.
