Out of curiosity, do you have a reason for wanting to keep the
"old-fashioned way"? Is it a goal of your project to depend on s6 and
s6-rc, but not current s6-linux-init? It seems to me that doing so
would be easier. It even looks like you could use the current
/etc/slew/init/rc.{init,fin} scripts (perhaps with minor adjustments)
as s6-linux-init's rc.init and rc.shutdown for slew, respectively.
