I did not realise the great simplification to the command line options
of `s6-svscanctl' would not have been possible if s6-svscan(ctl) need
to, for example, know about halt, poweroff and reboot. Here I retract
the quoted statement; instead, I will rework the mechanism around
`.s6-svscan/SIG*' in slew, and yet attempt to make the behaviour
mostly backwards compatible.
