I considered that. Whilst it's an improvement on what happens now, it
still seems like the wrong thing to me: typically a crash will dump core
and destroy, meaning I can't then log in and look around (or debug it
live from the dom0). I imagine I could set 'preserve', but then I have
to preserve real crashes too, which is not likely to be what I want.
Since we can't have a new state, it seems like leaving it would be best.
Perhaps renaming it to indicate it won't respond to a shutdown request?
