  Lots of people think of hacks. But hacks are a problem, not a solution;
they're the very problems that supervision was made to solve.

  The non-hackish solution is to have the supervisor start very early,
before any service; then you don't have to make that choice, because
every longrun can be supervised.
  That's what s6-linux-init and nosh do. It's a solved problem.
