Hard to say what's better. A newbie might be surprised if kill <name>
won't stop something bad.
My "start audio session scripts" start with
killall -9 -w [...], so what ever should happen, I only need to start
the script again, but I agree, if I have to manually kill something I
start with a simple killall or kill.
