It is very dangerous to kill process which is not stopping within constant 
timeframe - in the case of database which is for example handling logs you can 
cause lot of problems (at minimum as soon as you will attempt to start it in 
the future, you will wait for recovery to finish, which can take very long) => 
i think it should be optional and that it is sufficient to kill the process in 
stop method if the user wish it.

-1 for adding killing the process from monit
