max-death-tally and down-signal are now supported by s6-rc longruns, but the documentation for s6-rc-compile doesn't say so. The attached corrects that!
Applied, thanks !
By the way -- I have s6/s6-rc/s6-linux-init set up as the init system for my own GNU/Linux systems now, and it is _delightful_ seeing how nicely everything fits together. Huge thanks for making this possible.
Glad it's working for you ! :) -- Laurent
