I'm pondering about implementing pkill like functionality in kill,
instead of introducing a new command specific for the purpose.  My
idea is basicly to make `kill' accept a name instead of just a pid, so
the command would look something like:

kill [-s SIG | -SIGNAL] PID | NAME

Personally, I think this makes more sense than introducing pkill (or
for that matter, killall).  And is cleaner.  What do people think
about this?

(Note, I'm only pondering about it, I don't know when I'll get about
implementing it, I was also pondering about doing something similar to
GNU ps (it is in the Hurd), where you could specify something like `ps
