yes, init is now able to provide services to its siblings. For details,
please refer to the corresponding section [1] of the release notes. To
see this feature used in practice, you may have a look at the new
version of the gems/run/ script [2]. There is a dedicated sub init
for all the drivers and one for all the window-manager components. By
combining init's service forwarding with the new depot tools, all the
ugly conditional parts of the run script are magically gone now. See the
previous version [3] of the run script for comparison.
