None of the solutions I could come up with made me wildly enthousiastic

The wrapper sounds like the best solution in my case; I didn't know about
limitations with s6, but I can live with that: the systems where I use s6,
i tend to
have enough control to not run into conflicting binaries, so I don't need to
resolve to this workaround.

thanks for your input!
