What is slew? I searched it for 10 minutes, hit two acronym servers,
and based on context figuring it might be configuration management
software, looked up puppet chef ansible salt slew but got nothing but
the word "a slew of" meaning "a lot of".

Is slew software in the s6 or s6-rc stack, or is it something else?
