The recent updates to the daemons seem to have bought us a lot of headroom here.

We have flood, free, cancel and retry workflows now; the exec (run a task by ID in the foreground) and kill (bulk-cancel tasks by query-like selection) workflows described in the original description would probably be the most useful additions at this point. kill might not be a very good name, the desired behavior is more like cancel-all-tasks-matching [conditions].
