I think at a minimum, a return should be added in the cases that call GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent and it fails.

Here's a more radical proposal, though: deprecate kill() on Windows and add a function that calls GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent and another that calls TerminateProcess.  The rationale is that the two do act quite a bit differently than kill does on non-Windows systems do and it's a bad idea to try to provide cross-platform functionality when it can't be done.  kill() on non-Windows systems would be left alone.
