Not using s6-linux-init has never been an explicit goal, but using
static scripts was a natural choice when s6-linux-init only provided
`s6-linux-init-maker', which produced scripts that were not that

Currently I do not understand the `s6-linux-init-shutdown(d)' way
well, so the old-fashioned way is retained at least for now, given its
simplicity in implementation and seemingly better flexibility. Frankly
it is my intuition that the new way costs more than the old way, but
does not provide that much in return. (Feel free to prove me wrong.)
