Sure there is, SysV-Init, so just put the symlinks into the rcX.d
folders and rc will do the rest (or just use update-rc.d), but from what
i've seen the service script just does this:
'/sbin/service sshd stop' is translated to '/etc/init.d/sshd stop'
Additionally you can list the status of all services and to a restart
even if the script in /etc/init.d does not directly support this.
I don't think that is a part of runlevel configuration, but just saves a
little typing, or did i miss something?

After all the service thing really only saves you from typing 'exec
/sbin/service' (or even 'exec service') instead of 'service'. I don't
see a good reason for this.
