This turned out to be easier than I expected, so I just committed an 
implementation of it. The admin html-frontend is still not done, but you can 
access http://your.server:port/admin/killsource?mount=/mountname" with a web 
browser to test it. Username is either of admin username and password, or the 
username/password for that mountpoint (both as configured in the config file)
