Can you back out this change until we've had time to discuss it and
possible alternatives?

Reverted.

The problem was that win32api module is part of pywin32 which was available
in Active Python but not Python from Python.org, which figures as to
be used in
win32-installer-zenmap-buildguide.txt.

However, I've since reverted to an exact environment as in the
zenmap build guide and
I have the following two alternative approaches that work just fine:

#Use ctypes instead pywin32 which is a standard library in
Python.org distribution
import ctypes
ctypes.windll.kernel32.TerminateProcess(int(self.command_process._handle),
-1)

-or-

# :-P
os.popen('TASKKILL /PID '+str(self.command_process.pid)+' /F')

The ctypes method looks good to me. Please check that it works back to
Windows XP, and then you can commit it.
