  Clarity is important, "run" and "up" are not the same, and "down" and
"finish" are not the same;up/down is semantically correct for oneshot
(more than onboot/onhalt for instance), and in regular s6-rc use, there
should be no possible confusion between oneshot "down" files and
supervision "./down" files - as opposed to in a mailing-list discussion
without using the tools.
