I'm just playing around with xkill and it seems a good app to put on
peoples desktops so that they don't have to resort to pulling up an
xterm and using ps aux | grep appname and then kill it's pid

kill your kde desktop, taskbar or perhaps even an app with unsaved data
that hasn't crashed.

Is it possible to rig up xkill so that it gives you an "Are you sure
