  sv status will not work, because the status file has a different
format in s6 and in runit.
  sv t and others? It may work; it may not. If you try this, it's on
you: the interface between s6-svc and s6-supervise is not public and
is not guaranteed stable. Generally speaking, using the tools of one
supervision suite on another one isn't something I think is worth
spending effort on.
