  Oh, you can do it with s6 already: it requires blurring the frontier
between stage 1 and stage 2, as I explain (but not enough, because it
was not the focus of the document) in .

  The trick is to have s6-svscan up and running before you complete
the one-shot initialization of stage 1. It's doable, if a little
tricky; the future s6-init package will do it automatically for you
(but it's at least several months away).

  What is true is that you cannot interleave one-shots and long-running
processes if you are following the runit model, that only launches
runsvdir once all the one-shots have run.
