initiated by DO_Shutdown, the power button, and the GUI ends (after
attempting an orderly shutdown) by invoking "halt" to do the final
power-off. So changing it would result in an infinite loop, ultimately.
(There was a small project at one time, called "Overslung", that tried to
replace the startup/shutdown mechanism in Unslung with the more standard
"init" mechanism. Ultimately, it started to break compatability, and it
began to look more like SlugOS (aka OpenSlug) than Unslung, so there really
wasn't any point. If a sane startup and shutdown is required, such as for
UPS systems or for RAID disk handling, I'd recommend SlugOS for such users.)
