Hmmn, I looked at the code and by golly you're right, halt/reboot doesn't 
poke init.

Nonetheless, I really do see a lot of "foo stopping" messages when I use 
halt, presumably because the SIGTERM that halt/reboot sends has the same 
effect (if not the same ordering) as the ones that the various rc.d 
scripts send.

Looks like "init 0" would be tidier than halt -p, and in the finest Unix 
tradition, is one less character to type.
