Some random thoughts on s6 and execline...

* s6-ipcserver was moved from s6-networking to s6, but
  `s6:doc/ucspilogd.html' still refers to `s6-ipcserver' with a link to
  similarly, `s6:doc/s6-log.html' talks about "combined with the
  s6-networking package".

* s6, s6-rc and s6-networking use execline's library, which is itself
  undocumented; perhaps it will also be documented?

* The fd holder in s6 seem unable to retain its state over restart,
  which IMHO can be a small SPOF. Not serious, but not always
  insignificant (see <> for
  an example). Also, if persistence is to be implemented (eg. through
  some FIFO files), a specified way to clear the persistent store might
  also be useful.
