Comment(by hawke at hawkesnest.net):

 Can't it be assumed that any time we're at the filo prompt, it's safe to
 shut down?  I would certainly hope so.  The only time it might be unsafe
 is while nvram is being written, and that's 1. a very small window, 2.
 very rare, and 3. not happening while at a prompt. I think it might be
 better to print "Attempting to power down...", run the poweroff routine,
 and then return to the commandline.
