  Anonymous pipes won't work here because you'd need to control a common
ancestor to the processes you want to pipe. But named pipes do not have
that requirement.
  - Create a fifo somewhere in the filesystem.
  - Have your logger service redirect its stdin from a fifo.
  - Have your producer services redirect their stdouts to the same fifo.
  - Enjoy.
  - If you're paranoid: store both ends of the fifo in a s6-fdholderd
process, so you won't lose any logs if the logger restarts.
