Just to make sure:
Currently, is there an API in mythbackend to tell it 'please write your next
wakeup time to the RTC clock and shut the machine down if you aren't busy
with backend jobs right now' ?

If not, is that easy to add?
(there are plenty of reasons why it would be convenient to just shut the
machine down, but I don't think there is a way to do that while having the
backend update the RTC wakeup clock)
