Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

Sometimes I'm running a program in a terminal and it doesn't respond to ctrl-c sigint or the others.

Describe the solution you'd like

I want to send sigterm or sigkill to an application running in the terminal using a custom keyboard shortcut.

Describe alternatives you've considered
A clear and concise description of any alternative solutions or features you've considered.

The other option is using pkill from another shell, but that's a hassle. This answer says it's impossible to do the keyboard shortcut from a shell, so the terminal seems like a good place to do it.
