The PyMaemo team (which includes myself) can, but what we didn't hear
from the Hildon desktop developers whether this is a reliable
workaround or not :/. The only thing we know is that "it should work,
but may affect some widgets".

What I'm most afraid is if watchdog may reboot the device. It seems it
does not happen, but it would be nice to know (from Hildon developers)
if it is indeed safe to kill hildon-home with SIGTERM during a package
installation or not.
