    Is there a standard luna-send command or some other method to
    shut down an application by name?

    What I'm trying to do is find a way to sleep for a given amount of
    time and then cleanly shut down some running app like Pandora or
    Shoutcast. I'll execute it with a shell script of my own using the Terminal
    app on the Pre if I have to. Ideally I'd love to have
    a WebOS app that'll let you select some other running app
    from a list and a time interval to shut it down.

    Think of it like a sleep timer on a radio or TV.

    I tried that, but the apps all run within LunaSysMgr (with occasional
    help from external services like mediaserver and pulseaudio)
    so there's no standalone process id for each app.
    I'm hoping there's a luna-send command to tell LunaSysMgr to
    shut an app down, or a standard path within each app to request
    that it shut down cleanly (same as if you flicked it off the screen).
