Sure - if taskkill works and is reliable now. I guess few users are 
aware of taskkill. It should probably be mentioned in hg help serve - 
together with kill for unix-ish systems.

Still, it would also be nice to have a cross platform way to terminate 
the daemon we started. Something that not only sent the signal, but also 
waited for the process to actually terminate...
