Excellent, this looks like what I'm looking for. Is there no way to combine them into one file?

To simulate what happens when the system shuts down, so I don't actually have to shutdown the system every time I want to test the Upstart config.

I don't want to set up a daemon. As per the question, I want to use Upstart to run commands on startup and shutdown that do create a persistent process.

comment Multiple version of Grub?
