I doubt this the case, here.  The MacOS is completely gone at the time we
try to shutdown or reboot from BSD.  Thus, any routines, procedures, etc.
that you can call from MacOS are not available.  What Chris dug around to
find was the Mac ROM entry point for shutdown/reboot--several levels down
from the "Shutdown Manager."  The call does work on the II and the SE/30,
for sure.
