  You don't have to use it if you don't like it. It's used internally
by s6, but it can remain out of your sight at all times.

  If you have constructive criticism, we'd welcome your input on the
supervision at mailing-list, or the #s6 channel on
Freenode (where anopa's author also lurks).
  I'm especially interested in what you find "not very good" with
s6-rc, and how you think it could improve. Aside from a friendlier UI,
which is something that a lot of people, including Alpine core devs,
have requested, and that is on the roadmap.
