 1. Completely agree.
 2. I agree with, but please improve the indentation with the "Exit" label, 
 and don't remove the "Shell label".
 3. Don't agree with. If people setup their system properly, it shouldn't 
 autoboot via the CD (that and cdeject isn't standard.. I could reinvent 
 the wheel in a few lines to issue the actual ioctl, but it still seems 
 unnecessary and annoying as it would screw up geom, etc, in the event 
 that the installer thought it was finished, but it wasn't 100% completed.
