Isn't this the kind of situation that the cancelation editor that Bill
Tutt wrote a while back would be used for?

To provide a means for the client application to indicate that it wants
the library to stop whatever it was doing and clean up.

I seem to remember it being removed a while back (and i'm not sure why),
but it does seem like there needs to be some means of providing this
functionality, both for the command line client and control-c, and for a
gui client with a dialog where you can just hit cancel.
