Void (both glibc and musl) have had the whole s6 suite and skarnet libs
on its repositories for all (xx) architectures. s6-rc doesn't work out
of the box though (tried and tried, I don't know enough to get it
working). I can install an arch kernel and make a bootable image by
installing Obarun's s6-rc into void (glibc) and then 66. Obarun's 66 is
also in Void repositories, current and identical, I believe.

Adelie (musl-posix) must be getting really close to replacing
sysv/openrc with full s6.
