I'd prefer a solution, which only warns the user (in pkg_pretend), if a service 
he uninstalls is still enabled and/or running.

Silently disabling and stopping the service isn't really nice.

It might be ok to automatically disable/stop the service, but you have to warn 
the user about that before(!) the uninstallation.
