thanks Tassilo. I'm trying to do this but failing.

So I think I need a kill-buffer-hook that can get the process of the
current buffer, check if it looks like the process I know needs a
SIGTERM, and then send it one.

I'm wondering if I can set some kind of attribute on the buffer when I
create the process, so I can easily recognise it at kill time? Rather
than looking at the command line or something.

I'm lost with even the basic syntax to do any of this though. Could you
