No translator can refuse a kill -9, and no translator can avoid being
detached from the parent filesystem on the parent filesystems will.

However, settrans -g is just a friendly request to leave, while -fg is an
unfriendly request to leave ("go even if you have live users").  -d means to
the parent filesystems: "detach it from yourself" (the parent filesystem
itself might ignore the request of course :)

kill -9 is the very only way to really, really get rid off a translator, but
we want -fg, -g, -TERM and everything to work as expected of course (for
trusted translators anyway).

If in doubt, read the source! :)
