Is a 'halt' really good? I mean, you'd have to press C-A-A again to get to
something usefol. I thought of "shutdown -h now" first, but this is basically
the same.

Going singleuser ("shutdown now") doesn't seem a good option too as the
filesystems might not get unmounted propperly (which might be of interrest if
we get clean-flags for our file-systems somewhen).

Semains a "reboot" that goes either into AmigaOS or into NetBSD.

So: what is the Right Thing to do at C-A-A?
