If the shutdown callback is next to the application and not registered 
in a request, why not also have the symmetric "server start up" callback 
that would not wait for a request? This would avoid workarounds like 

Both of these callbacks could be called once per process (aka. space 
where requests share memory.)

Instead of having to provide two or three objects separately to a 
server, how about making the callbacks attributes of the application
