I think it would be better to first run the scripts for runlevel
and than send the TERM & KILL signals. I makes more sense to me
fisrt running the 'cleanup' scripts for a runlevel and than terminate
any remaining processes by sending TERM & KILL

Hmmm, maybe I should put it on my todo list. I'll see if I can make
some time for this.
