It is up to the translator to decide when it is safe and desireable to shut
down when there are no users.  The general plan is to do this after a
timeout, but the implementations are not entirely consistent.  Look at the
calls to ports_manage_* and the code around them--those functions take
arguments for the timeout value and return when the timeout expires.  After
that, the server code must ascertain if there are no user ports and if so
it can to decide to exit.
