I'm all for being graceful and polite, so this sounds good.

However, events are bound to be lost. The solution would be more robust
if there was a way to query the state of the monitor (though I'm not
sure it is worth the hassle).

PS, I wonder what VMM stands for in this context. Not virtual memory
manager, I suppose.

Since I've only read the comments, not the code, I wonder if the 'quit'
command is still passed to the monitro even after an error occured.
Without it, we'd have to resort to SIGTERM/SIGKILL, which is less
graceful.
