┌──────────────────────────┤ Configuring sysv-rc ├──────────────────────────┐

│ The boot system is prepared to migrate to dependency-based sequencing. │

│ │
│ A full rationale is detailed in /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.Debian. If │

I noticed this on Crunchbang, it's fine. As far as I worked out, it's to better optimize the boot up if it's a desktop install. I've had no issues saying yes.

I answered yes on LMDE 64bit when it came up and it's been fine.

I answered "yes" to the option, as well. There have been no unusual effects on any of my systems thus far.

A general caution
Usually there is little problem accepting replacement/updated files, but..

Sometimes when you use a newer (developer) script/replacement file than the one that is currently working on the computer, there can be a problem with your user login
--the user settings can be changed
