What functionality would you like? :p

Shutdown is just an event that happens to cause some services to stop,
and some tasks to start that bring the system down.

Or maybe shutdown is a single task that does everything in a defined
order, and your services "stop on starting shutdown" so they block it.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
