That suffers from the same problem as a system_reboot command in that
the guest may never start the shutdown. If that's an acceptable limitation, then we might as well implement it directly in QEMU as
system_reboot so its easily available to everyone. Make 'system_reboot'
take an optional timeout arg (default to 60 seconds) after which it
cancels its plans.

That's a heuristic and we tend to avoid implementing heuristics in QEMU. It's really the role of a management tool to make policy decisions.
