 One of the potential uses for sugar is in schools in the developed world,
 where the teachers are used to having computer labs with a less than 1:1
 ratio. (even if every child has a computer, it isn't theirs, or they use
 different computers)

 Add an option to the drop down menu that says "Leave" (or even "log out")
 that will go through the shutdown sequence minus the shutting down. (send
 termination signals to activities and quit sugar, the gdm or kdm will
 handle it from there)

 This option will only be presented if "multiuser = True" in
