I wouldn't argue that it's something we should *enable* by default, just
something to have available and enableable (perhaps via system.conf).

Related to that, would you be willing to take patches for separate tiny
binaries for shutdown/poweroff/etc, so that they don't depend on argv[0]
to decide what to do?  That would make it easier to do things like
diverting /sbin/poweroff to /sbin/poweroff.real and putting a wrapper in
