There was a related thread about this a year ago, regarding how Emacs
responds to SIGTERM by calling shut_down_emacs rather than kill-emacs:

  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2009-01/msg00530.html

The thread did not have a clear conclusion, but I'm in favor of changing
things to run kill-emacs in such situations.  But I think this is best
done after the release, unless someone can come up with a very
convincing argument otherwise.
