Single user mode

When I use "/etc/shutdown" I get the message telling me to press RETURN
to reboot. I'd like the system to go into single user mode instead.
(With a shell). Then, "init 2" could be used to start the system back up.

Who/what is detecting the transition into single user mode and displaying
that message? And how can it be changed?

I did a quick scan of wmgr, smgr, ph, init, shutdown, and the kernel and
couldn't find it.
