I just sed do_rc_shotdown (or whatever it is called) to no, as I
don't run anything that actually needs to be shut down before a reboot.

Maybe instead of rc.shutdown running the scripts with a "stop" arg
it could run them with "shutdown", then just the few scripts
(databases and the link) that actually need to do something at
system shutdown time can have a "shutdown" case, and all the rest
can just no nothing...
