Yes, that part I noticed, but it didn't occur to me that that lone '-q'
was taken as selector... Well, I feel dumb as a doorbell :)
It's been a while since I last touched s6.

The reason for lone '-q' was that I seem unable to give '!zstd -q' as
one argument in the rsyslogd omprog module configuration:
action(type="omprog" binary="/usr/bin/env - /usr/bin/s6-log -q n30 s10000000 !zstd -q /var/log/test" template="...)

Compressed=yes and all, oh well...
