That's not a bad idea in itself but I don't think it's something the server
should be in the business of doing. One big reason is that the server
shouldn't be imposing arbitrary policy. That should be something the person
running the shutdown is in control over.

What you could do is have a separate program (I would write a client but a
server-side function would work too) to kick off users based on various
criteria you can specify.

Then you can put in your backup scripts two commands, one to kick off idle
users and then do a smart shutdown.
