Not presently. I've long thought we should have a qmf shutdown command
on the broker but never actually did anything about it. Mucking about
with extra processes is painful for such a basic task.

There is a denial of service security concern, my feeling is that adding
a "shutdown" permission to the ACL rules would cover that.

Anyone think this is a bad idea, or have a better idea?
