There is a minor difference: for some reason 'service-control --exit'
doesn't unload a service that is already in the 'stopped' state. It
will be unloaded if it is later started and then stopped. In contrast,
'system-control unload-when-stopped' unloads a stopped service
immediately (which IMO is the desirable effect).
