I think the argument for it went along the lines of "what if you've got
a misbehaving client that continually issues expensive queries, so
canceling any one query doesn't help?"  I found this unconvincing, as
a client that obstreperous might simply reconnect and start issuing the
same queries again; so having a session-kill tool doesn't really get you
much further.  I recall being voted down though ...
