ITP: runit-init -- a UNIX init scheme with service supervision

This essentially is a reintroduction of the package "runit-run", which
was added to Debian end of 2002, and removed on request of the release
team end of 2010, with the package name changed.  Since then, a backward
compatibility feature for running sysv rc scripts was added, ideally to
be replaced by runit service directories eventually.

Description: a UNIX init scheme with service supervision
 runit is a replacement for SysV-init and other init schemes.  It runs on
 Debian GNU/Linux, *BSD, MacOSX, and Solaris, and may be easily adapted
 to other Unix operating systems.  runit implements a simple three-stage
 concept.  Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks.
 Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program).
 Stage 3 handles the tasks necessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.
 See http://smarden.org/runit/ for more information.
 This package replaces the /sbin/init program and configures runit to run
 as process no 1 after the next reboot.
