Add info to "How does a Debian system boot?" about service(8); the sysadmins' interface for

dealing with start/stop scripts is not changed when switching from sysv init to systemd.

<p>You can check the status of any service by the command
<example>service <var>package</var> status</example>
. To start or stop a service, run
<example>service <var>package</var> start</example>
<example>service <var>package</var> stop</example>
. The <tt>service</tt> command works with any init system supported on a
Debian system, not just with systemd. If you however prefer to use the same
command on any systemd-supported Linux system, for checking the status run
<example>systemctl status <var>package</var>.service</example>
to get the same information.</p>
