Indeed! With s6-linux-init-skeleton, I only intend to provide the basic
skeleton (as buildroot/package/init-scripts does for Busybox /sbin/init)
to have a working device.

In Buildroot, there are currently:

- 93 SysV-like init scripts
- 41 systemd service files

Buildroot would be a good thing. But maybe fetching them from a
repository or generating them from systemd service files would do the
