I'm in a much better position to give you an opinion now:

* I'm much more knowledgeable about inits than in 10/2014
* I now have a computer with hardware VM accelleration, makes all the
  difference in the world.
* I've discovered Plop Linux, a bare bones, almosts transparent distro
  that's very easy to work on.

I'll try very hard, within the next 2 weeks, to lay down an S6 init on
a VirtualBox VM loaded with Plop Linux.
