Does anyone think there might be some utility with an @shutdown crontab(5) 
"nickname" similar to @reboot but instead when cron shuts down?

I pointed out to one of my customers that @reboot might be an option 
instead of an rc script (or in his case a systemd unit file). Not that an 
@reboot for FreeBSD cron would contribute to solving his Linux problem but 
might our users be interested in something like this?
