On a similar note 2 programs I maintain (bat and dust) include fish completion files.  I include them with the SBo package, even though I don't use fish, because I noticed a few other programs I use also include fish completion files and it doesn't hurt to include them.

As someone who doesn't use runit, I certainly wouldn't mind having the runit scripts included as long as they don't interfere with anything else (I assume they wouldn't).
