  Yeah, it's going to be deprecated, because there's a lot of
functionality missing and it's good for playing but not for
integration in distributions, which is my current focus.
But s6-linux-init- isn't going anywhere, you will still be
able to download it from the web site or to build it from git,
and I don't expect it to bitrot any soon.
