Well, #57 is $command_utils, and it doesn't define a @shutdown verb.
Blah. Of course I know you meant to say $wiz:@shutdown. Just a reminder -
not all MOO databases are based on the same LambdaCore, ok?
Not to mention that the homologous line in our $wiz:@shutdown is number 18
by now...

It is best to provide some message to be shown to the users. This
requirement for trailing blankspace probably attempts to enforce that by
making a message-less @shutdown command work differently than expected.
Right, not the best way to do it.
