Those are the semantics we implement and expect in our scheduler and executor. The only time
we emit TASK_KILLED is in response to a scheduler kill, and a scheduler kill always ends in

The rationale for this is
1. We want to distinguish whether the task finished for its own reasons (ie. not due to a
scheduler kill)
2. The scheduler told us to kill the task and we did, so it was TASK_KILLED (irrespective
of any exit status)
