Well, if for example one tasks starts to consume a lot of cpu or
memory, that should show up as resources consumed by the responsible
process in the ps/top listing, and the sysadm could kill that. Not
much different from controlling a single thread that starts to
misbehave: The sysadm can find the corresponding process, and kill
that. For a child hurd, that would be the corresponding boot process.

(One might of course have specialized tools for killing individual
tasks as well).
