I think the statements about Shutdown only being useful in parallel
mode aren't quite striking the right tone.  In theory a node can hold
any kind of resources and find it worthwhile to release them at
shutdown time.  I think we'll eventually find it useful to run
shutdown callbacks in other cases as well - e.g. when a Limit has been
filled.  It's probably true that the undeniable need for this today is
in the parallel query case, but I'd like to have this text read in a
way that doesn't assert that this is the only possible use case,
because I don't think it is.

I rewrote the documentation along those lines a bit and committed this.
