I think there might still be some room for improvement here...

The problem I'm having is that Spring-DM also hooks a
SynchronousBundleListener into the OSGi framework. Because Spring-DM's
listener is registered first, and executes first, it goes ahead and
shuts down all my bundles *before* my listener gets a chance to do
anything useful.

(As an aside, for a STOPPING/STOPPED event, IMO it would make sense to
execute listeners in reverse order i.e. the higher level listeners
registered later should be executed first, rather than last. However,
I guess this wasn't specified in the OSGi spec so nothing can be done
there. There also appears to be no way specified to control the order

So... I still think it would be useful if Karaf provided an event or
hook for just before a shutdown begins. Thoughts?
