If you give a large number of PID's in the argument list for kill then before
kill kills all the process I guess we can interrupt it (Since in the source code
nowhere it is catching a interrupt). It should actually be, "it doesn't stop for
confirmation" instead of "you cant stop it".

This is perfect.
