Unless Bill hacked /sbin/service to pass additional parameters through
to the legacy script, I don't see how.  Anyway this seems a bit outside
the charter of the legacy-script feature, which IIUC is to let you do
exactly what you did before.  If you now prefer postgresql-setup,
by all means keep using that.
