RE: [chat] Killing run away scripts

Ken wanted to know how to make it portable.
killall isn't portable, only works on linux and does interesting things on
other unices.
All unices I know of understand kill -KILL pid
if you must...

However the root of the problem (as it were) would probably best be handled
on an individual case.
I thought of doing something similar for remote crashed Xterms (user error)
but soon found out that the real processes looked similar to ones that
should be shut down. So I manually intervene.

I like the `at` suggestion, but the kill needs to be the generic one.
