[plt-scheme] What is the difference between stop and kill key commands?

Kill shuts down the custodian (and is not catchable) and stop sends a
break (which is catchable).

Try this infinite loop to see the difference:

(with-handlers ((exn:break?
                 (λ (x)
                   (printf "broken\n"))))
  (let loop () (loop)))

stop will print something, kill won't.
