Running & interrupting s6-svscan in terminal

When s6-svscan is running in a terminal, and I hit Ctrl-C, the processes
managed by s6 are not interrupted, and remain running after s6-svscan has
quit. I'm guessing this has something to do with CTRL-C behavior wrt
process groups, but I'm not knowledgeable enough on the subject to know
what's going on.

Is there a way to run s6-svscan from a terminal, and have CTRL-C do what
you would expect (i.e. the same as s6-svscanctl -i)?
