I don't think provide both upstart and initscript for one package will
benefic fedora, especially in the scenario when the upstart scripts
have seriously functional regression compared with initscripts.
Currently, only one packager provide both upstart scripts and

We currently don't have a policy about upstart scripts, however a
single person to change his packaging style agaist all other packagers
in the repo will confuse many linux users or system administators.

Before opposing me, you can look at those -upstart subpackages, you'll
found they are not as good as you imagined. They are different from
other system upstart scripts.
