comment How do I stop Ubuntu from starting daemons I've not explicitly asked to run?
I upvoted this because it is the closest solution you're likely to get with Ubuntu, although I think that making the init directories unmodifiable is a terrible idea (Just imagine trying to install a service that you WANT to start). I know that find can be used to monitor changes in files and directories, although I'm not familiar enough with the tool to give you an exact command. I would ask one of the gurus for a working command, stick it in a bash script, and run it after each install, then use sysv-rc-conf to manually disable the services you don't want.

I'm torn between +1'ing the balls you had to use that excuse, and -1'ing for lying to the user....
