  Well, by the point I remembered to make the change, I already had
systems depending on the old behaviour :/
  So, all in all, I don't think I'll swap the default meaning after all.
It's purely a convention anyway, and busybox init, sinit and sysvinit all
disagree - so I'm afraid there can't be a generic "shutdown" client;
every init system must come with its own "shutdown" program, that honors
its own convention.

  Sorry about that.5
