Nope. g-p-m only does the gnome-session non-interactive shutdown stuff,
then calls the HAL Shutdown() method. I guess gnome-session should be
patched for the new HAL Shutdown() method also, so all the per-distro
hacks and special casing can be removed.

Any stuff you want to run per-system on a shutdown has to be added
to /usr/share/hal/scripts/hal-system-power-shutdown
