    Resolution: Fixed

> Improve safety of killing a job

> Completely killing a job is a relatively rare operation, and one that should not be taken
lightly.  We have seen instances where users intend to invoke {{aurora kill}} with the {{--shards}}
argument, but for various reasons may wind up killing the entire job.
> It's a prudent for us to impose a barrier for a user to back out of a destructive action
before it's too late, and also to distinguish partial job kills from complete job kills.
> I propose we introduce a new command: {{aurora killall}}, which is the means of completely
killing a job (killing all instances of a job).  Additionally, {{aurora kill}} will require
a specification of shards/instances.  -I propose that the new {{killall}} subcommand pause
for a yet-to-be-determined period after displaying a warning that the entire job is about
to be killed.  This would allow the user time to notice an unintentionally-broad action. 
Users wanting to immediately kill an entire job (without the pause) would be forced to explicitly
do so by specifying all instance IDs to the {{kill}} command.-
