I like the idea of a combined startup/shutdown script, but I would also suggest that we
consider using "start" and "stop" as the arguments, rather than "-start" and "-stop".  The
reasoning is that this is the standard convention on many Unix platforms for system scripts
that go in /etc/init.d or /etc/rc.d/init.d.  If a Tomcat-based application is installed on
such a system, this makes integration of the startup/shutdown script easier.
