  Oh, and btw, I'll have to change s6-rc-init and go back to the
"the directory must not exist" model, and you won't be able to
use a tmpfs as live directory - you'll have to use a subdirectory
of your tmpfs.

  The reason: as it is now, it's too hard to handle all the failure
cases when updating live. It's much easier to build another live
directory, and atomically change what live points to - by renaming
a symlink. And that can't be done if live is a mount point.
