[DONE]openbox/menu.xml: add xkill shortcut?

xkill can be handy sometimes when your desktop is starting to freeze up. It gives you a cross to click on a window and kill it. In times like that it's better to have a keyboard shortcut than having to open a new window just to run a command.

Does anyone object if I bind xkill to Super+Esc.?

I brick things so often. xkill is probably one of my most used resources.

I always used to add that to my menus smile

EDIT: `pkill $program` or `killall $program` called from dmenu would be more effective in terms of shutting down a runaway $program though.
