I could have sworn Buildbot already did this, but from a brief review
of the source (slave/buildslave/runprocess.py:RunProcess.kill), it
looks like it begins by sending SIGKILL, either through os.kill or
self.process.signalProcess, and if that fails to cause the process to
terminate, it just simulates a termination and leaves the process

So yes, I'd be interested to see a patch to send SIGTERM first!
