RE: kill session privilage

I imagine the reason goes something along the lines of "Sometimes developers fire off queries that are going to run for an exceptionally long time, often accidentally" If you are only talking about killing sessions on a development machine then I think it's a fairly valid request - I can't imagine why a developer would ever want to kill a production session.

The earlier suggestion of writing a procedure and granting execute rights on that procedure is an approach I have heard of before.
