[Asterisk-Dev] Why use SIGABRT to kill mpg123 procs in res_musiconhold?

My * server's /var/lib/asterisk/mohmpg directory is littered with core 
files. After I little digging through the asterisk sources, I think I 
know why. The function ast_moh_destroy() in res_musiconhold.c uses 
SIGABRT to terminate mpg123 processes. Is there a reason for using 
SIGABRT and not SIGTERM or SIGKILL instead?
