I'm a bit reluctant as of the backward compatibility breakage.  What
if somebody uses shutdown in a script?  You know, starting a backup
in the evening and the last action of the script is to hibernate the
machine or something like that...

1.10 is fine I think.  Say, do you want to take over shutdown
maintainership?  It's an easy enough package to start with, it
builds fine on 32 and 64 bit, and you get the cygport configuration
"for free".  What do you say?
