No, there is no 'shutdown now', there's only 'shutdown after this session is
done' and 'shutdown after all sessions are done' (in current CVS anyway,
I haven't actually tested that code yet, that's why there wasn't a devel
release yet :) I think session manager should use the 'shutdown after this
session is done' and then it should end the session and the dm will shut
down. The other option is more for some sysadmin tool IMO.
The session manager should take care of warning the user if there are other
users logged on I think, perhaps even looking at ssh logins and such. But
that's an implementation detail of the session manager.
