This is all fine, but what about daemons which have dependencies on remote
filesystems without declaration? Apache comes to mind, which often may run
on a Network filesystem. If killing all processes at the shutdown does not
observe the priority/ordering of the daemons this might kill the filesystem
thread before apache can write out pending data.
