  That sounds very much like what is planned for s6-rc v1, so I think
you will like it when it drops - but it won't be in the near future.

  However, I have some ideas for new s6 tools that wouldn't follow this
model directly but would make it easy for users to create and delete
new instance models, and add/remove instances - so your components
could be implemented over these tools by simple shell scripts. I'll
try to work on that soon.
