I didn't see a form for feature requests, so I'm using the bug-report form.
I'd like to see a mechanism for forcibly killing a thread. I realize this is
unsafe, but it has its uses. For example, in a project I'm working on, we run
untrusted code in a separate thread. We'd like to be able to kill this thread
if it takes too long to execute.
