Sure, I get that; And to be clear I wasn't in any way "criticizing"
the magic in s6-rc, just merely explaining why I left it out of anopa.
It certainly is a cool thing from a user POV to have s6-rc handle all
that as simply/easily as it does.

But even though anopa doesn't do this on its own, you're right, I
should probaly have it (that "aa-command" longrun) somehow featured in
anopa, or make it easy for people to use it without having to figure it
out & write it on their own... Still thinking about how I'll do this.
