No DOWN file support in runit?

Hi all,

I've been using runit for about 4 months now, and a few days ago I
tried to disable a service by placing a file called DOWN in its
directory (like you would with s6 or daemontools). However, the service
kept coming up at boot.

What's the idiomatic way to prevent a runit service from starting at
boot? I hope the answer isn't to unlink it.
