I'm not sure that moving it to shutdown is a proper solution. Think
about a laptop shuting down because its battery is nearly empty: how
good is it to slow down the shutdown and risk a brutal power off ?
Also, I'm often waiting for my computer to shutdown before leaving, I
don't want to be late because of a fsck.

Making it interruptible and runnable on demande easily is more
important, then it can be on bootup or shutdown, I don't care ;)
