would require the complete shutdown mechanism to be re-implemented in 
the plugin. Doing it in runvdr and shutdown script would be easier.

However, it might be worth thinking about giving plugins the ability to 
set a different wakeup time, so that a scheduled EPG scan plugin can be

Actually, whether this is internally or externally, the complexity stays 
the same. It would probably work mostly the same way: Tweak the wakeup 
time, detect this on wakeup, start the EPG scan, go offline.
