hm.. I meant to add, that having a standard API for such as this would
make it easier to do without making mistakes :)

For some reason, I have an uncommitted change in my local source tree, to
use SIGTERM for this.. which would at least always cause an exit. (I don't
remember why I made that change, have not looked at it for a while as my
