Yes, but is stop so is supose to stop! So if is a real multi-user as you
said, you need to take some preventions acording to the setup.

The real problem in doing a killall sshd, is for example if you run
multiple sshd on the same machine. (I do this for example for my build
So the S1 of doing a killall is very anoying of course.

In any way, is interesting in considering that stop "network" should be
the last step just after killall5 in rc.{shutdown,single} of course if
this don't have any problems with the differents setups that the user
can configure ;)

PS: I am very happy with ssh escapes :P that Jared suggested.
