If you specify the -stopaction option when registering the service, then
that code will be called on normal shutdown.
For example -stopaction "init:stop()." does exactly what I expect when the
service gets the shutdown message from Windows.
I haven't read the code, though. :-)
Another rather useful option is -internalservicename, which sets an
explicit visible service name, instead of the strange hex stamped one you
get by default.
