databases or message queues.  It runs then goes to some
effort to remove generated files and certain packages because we found
services <cough rabbitmq> did not always restart cleanly early on, and
changing databases needs package attention too.  If you are not making
any configuration changes, both unstack and clean should be
unnecessary after a reboot.

If you are not making major config changes between runs this should
not be necessary.  The idea of needing a clean shutdown is less
important when all data involved is going to be deleted and re-created
on the next run anyway.
