SuperF4 - A shortcut to killing hung apps

If you use Windows, you know what it's like to have an application hang, get stuck, mired down with whatever process it's trying, and failing, to complete. You have to do a Ctrl+Alt+Del, open the Task Manager, find the process, click "End Process," then tell Windows you really do want to kill it. Who has the time?

With SuperF4, when you have the offending window in the foreground, press Ctrl+Alt+F4 and that mother will be shut down, no questions asked.
