  I have implemented your suggestions, with minor changes.

  For instance, I removed the "felldown" flag: the only case where it would
be false is at boot time, when the service hasn't been launched yet.
Using s6-svstat at this point is very unlikely and would return a transient
result, identified with "want up" in the output, unless the service has a
down file, in which case the admin is supposed to know what he's doing -
in other words, it's a corner case not worthy of ad-hoc code IMO.

  Please try the latest skalibs and s6 git snapshots and tell me if they're
working for you.
