As said before, it is better to kill fetch with a SIGINT since it will
do some cleanup as well. In any case, fetch will not fetch the same
article twice. But what is the sense of killing fetch anyway? It
always fetches only new articles. On my server, fetch runs every two
hours, and one run takes about 10 min (fetching only news from the
local server). In addition there is a fetch run at 4 in the morning which
gets news from several servers all around the world.

My gut feeling is that this will probably not work.
