  Clarity check.
  Casper, Guillermo and I were not talking about ./down files in a
(longrun) service directory. We were talking about "down" scripts
in a (oneshot) s6-rc service definition directory, which is not
the same at all.

  I agree that the name collision is confusing, and it is an annoyance.
But in the context of s6-rc, the confusion cannot happen, because
those "down" scripts only exist for oneshot services, which do not
have a service directory managed by a supervision suite.
