Except that Evo needs to connect to an X server even just to shut down.
I've occasionally wanted to log in remotely and kill an Evo session, and
pkill is simpler in this case. (I know you can do "ssh -X" but I for one
never remember that until I've already logged in :-)

Handy tip:

"--force-shutdown" just spawns ${libexec}/evolution/2.12/killev.
Calling killev directly doesn't require a display.

That's useful to know.

In earlier incarnations of Evo, the recommendation was to run "killev",
since this was also installed as a command. Why was this changed?
