Julian and I have been working on making CmdPeriod more flexible, as well as adding CmdPeriod/StartUp like objects for other events (shutdown, server boot/quit). (This was discussed in the Hague.) In the current draft (which we can forward to the list once a couple of things are sorted) the default stop stuff (clocks and servers-free) are moved into CmdPeriod, and can be disabled so that you can have your own behaviour.|
Something similar could be done with StartUp, so you could disable or replace the platform specific stuff.
