not to pick on you specifically Daniel, but this is a really cool
API for debugging, why not support it?

I mean, perhaps we add a pid arg to it?  But I mean, there's no
generation count for kill(2) (which could take one) to protect
things, so why is this such a horrible thing?

I can someone give a real reason for not liking it other than
1) it came from linux.
2) we didn't think of it.
3) supporting it is annoying. (it's not)
