  s6- is out.

  * s6-notifywhenup has been removed. Please use the ./notification-fd
    file for readiness notification.
  * Long-awaited feature: configurable timeouts for finish scripts!
     echo timeout-in-milliseconds > timeout-finish
    Infinite timeouts are supported, if timeout-in-milliseconds is 0.
    The default, when no timeout-finish file exists, is still 5000.
  * Support for the "really down" event, i.e. "./finish died". This
    is reported by s6-supervise as a D event. A "really down" service
    is reported by s6-svstat as "down and ready".
  * Change of interface for synchronous s6-svc, hence the major version bump.
    To wait for events u, U, d or D: -wu, -wU, -wd or -wD.
  * Change of format for the supervise/status file: readiness information
    included in it, and flags refactored. Compatibility with the
    runit/daemontools format has been broken. (But that shouldn't be a
    problem: nobody is switching supervisors while a service is running.)
  * Needs the latest skalibs (, for the function that makes
    supporting timeout-finish possible.


  Bug-reports welcome.
