Florian and Tobi,

Currently the daemon can take a long time to shut down, because it flushes
all updates out to RRDs...  If it's part of a system shutdown, then it
will likely take too long and receive a SIGKILL.

If we are journaling updates, it's not strictly necessary to flush all
RRDs out to disk..  When the daemon starts back up it can re-create its
memory state with the journal.

What do you think about an expedited shutdown if we are journaling
updates?  We could simply flush the journal and exit.
