Kill List: Is This A Bad Idea?

I was trying to think of a quick way to kill certain background/Menu Bar apps that don't appear in the Application Switcher and came up with this. It allows me to select multiple apps and have them quit upon hitting :leftwards_arrow_with_hook:. Is there a better way to do it? Is this a bad idea for some reason I've overlooked?

That's cool. I like it.

Hey Neil,

That should be pretty safe – by default killall sends a sigterm signal:

SIGTERM (15) – Termination signal. It is the default and safest way to kill process.

That's very similar to manually quitting an app.
