Err yes, sorry. Adjusted the patch description.

Right, so that you keep the sysv init script and unit in sync, instead
of enabling one and disabling the other.

Good point, thanks for spotting; fixed. We didn't have that problem in
our original patch as is-enabled didn't work; curiously, with the new
systemd-sysv-install wrapper we can now implement is-enabled trivially
:-) ).
