I've hit this occasionally, but it's not a big deal, as most daemons do "right
thing" when getting SIGTERM.

However if you ever plan to do this, I would like to suggest what I personally
would like best: using same file "interface" as with ./timeout-finish.

This would make it easy to spot special "outlier" services which are not like
the rest.
