Correct.  The proper thing to do is to look up `/servers/startup',
which Davids patch does.

Well, I haven't really talked too much about that.  The short version
is, that I split up `startup' into two components.  One of those
components, `startup-standalone' (for the lack of a better name),
supervises the core servers and handles the system shutdown.  I bind
it to `/servers/startup' for my new bootstrap procedure.

No I don't have access.
