And it appears to be compatible, indeed, as long as s6-log is invoked
with the 't' directive (prepend timestamp in TAI64N format), to match
the logging file format expected by follow-log-directories, as stated
in its documentation.

Also, note that follow-log-directories is a daemon, so it will keep
running and outputting log lines until killed, once it catches up with
the logging directory. TAI64N timestamps are not decoded, so if you
want them in human-readable format, pipe its standard output to

You might also want to separate follow-log-directories's standard
output stream from its standard error stream, since the program is
somewhat chatty during catch-ups and during logdir rotations.
