Most of the scripts under rcS.d fit the oneshot model much better than
the longrun model. I've written oneshot definitions for s6-rc to
handle the boot ordering correctly, primarily wrapping
`/etc/init.d/service start' (and stop where appropriate, I skipped
making down scripts for init scripts that no-op stop). I mostly did it
that way (instead of re-doing the work into execline) because the
called script might change and I'd rather not have to manage my own
fork of initscripts.
