    Well, he did suggest that in a roundabout way.
{grey at igbuntu:~} pidof gpgsm
16020 16018 16013 16011

    Since pidof returns all the pids that match the text supplied and kill 
will kill all the pids given to it "kill `pidof nautilus`" is the same as 
"killall nautilus".  And that's my new thing learned today, never knew about 
pidof.  :D
