Sorry! Explicit ./check-like behavior baked in to the ./run of the service
that needs checking as a way of translating from ./check polling into s6
notification. Basically Laurent's example though in my specific case the
functionality test is directly in the run script instead of in a support
script since the test is super simple.

In more general terms, I don't think s6 needs an `sv check' style test
added to it. Running those tests in a run script and translating the
results into notifications is a lot more powerful, and it simplifies the
between-service api.

I'll post the script when I'm near my computer, phone here too.
