Re: Faster shutdown and the ubuntu "multiuser" update-rc.d extention

* Felipe Sateler 

| If there are daemons which don't need to save state, or do useful work on
| shutdown (and thus don't need an init script)... why bother with TERMing them

As an example, an ftpd or smtpd could then close the connection with
«service going down» or similar instead of the socket just dying.
