Would you use a kill operation in the way you describe above if you knew
that it had, say, a 1% chance of causing a database-wide PANIC each time
you used it?

Seems there's the need for some connection killing functionality. If it's not present, the whole cluster needs to be shut down, which makes it unavailable with 100 % chance.

If there's a .00001 % chance it *corrupts* the cluster, the function is not acceptable. But iff it's a good chance to keep the cluster running, it's worth having it (and should be used sensibly).
