I agree with you Adrian. I've always said that s6 is the Cadillac of
the industry, even though the ultra-simple runit is good enough for me.

BUT, I get the feeling that Debian's handling of runit will always be
deficient, whereas I think Aitor has done a more complete and quality
job. This might give s6 a big advantage over runit on Devuan.
