Please explain / elaborate on "alarmingly complicated"; the answers already given and your answer seem to give evidence to the contrary...?

response to comment is beyond the scope of the question (and detracts from the clear and good answer)

comment Kinder / gentler / subtler equivalent alternative to killall (e.g. “endall”)?
@Pilot6 "softer" in the sense of System Monitor's "End" vs "Kill"

comment Why does killall (sometimes?) needs to be applied twice?
@Rinzwind the "-9" override is not the same as the double "-15" override (even if the eventual outcome is equivalent) -- plz prove me wrong.

comment Why does killall (sometimes?) needs to be applied twice?
@Rinzwind does the 2nd one possibly "override" the grace period (which I found loosely being referred to in a number of other posts)? Is there a way/flag to verbosely monitor the grace period "count-down"? Is there some hard evidence / source code to confirm the "override" hypothesis?
