> There is no SIGKILL signal in the python signal library on Windows, so the import in fails.
> There are two ways I can suggest that we fix it:
> 1) introduce platform-specific code into
> 2) wrap the python os.kill function
> My preference is for the former as it is a small and localized change. 
> In either case the use of SIGTERM should be sufficient on Windows, as the existing python
os.kill() function will open the process and terminate it, which is supposed to be equivalent
to a SIGKILL (-9) on Linux.
