Comment by gsmith on 2011-04-07 07:21:34 PM: This implementation may be improved by combining it with some of the ideas from this earlier patch submission.
Review by gsmith on 2011-05-27 01:54:24 AM: Suggested code rework and change in permissions check
Review by schmiddy on 2011-05-28 06:47:24 PM: Some further review.
Comment by aglio on 2011-07-10 06:05:59 PM: Needs more work on spec, security per Noah's comments.
Comment by fdr on 2011-11-16 09:25:09 PM: The limited form already posted would still have good value, without extension.
Comment by gsmith on 2011-12-01 11:12:20 AM: More agreement that a simple same-user cancel mechanism is good enough for now.
Comment by pvh on 2011-12-12 09:50:27 PM: Any improvement here will have major operational benefits for non-superuser users who need to be able to forcibly abort in progress statements.
