I've managed to build a psmisc package containing fuser, killall and
pstree.  fuser only makes sense with 1.5.13, therefore I'll upload
it not before 1.5.13 has been released.

An overkill package would also be handy, perhaps.

  $ overkill --help

  Well, nobody will be available to help you.  Or better, nobody will
  be available.  No no, actually, nobody will be.
