If I do a "run now" backup task/schedule from the plug-in, and decide it's a 
bad thing (say hypothetically that I started a multiple-vm backup task and 
noticed that it caused massive VMotion activity - just saying hypothetically, 
not admitting anything, oh no, nothing to see here....) how do you cancel a 
backup task from the plug-in?

If hypothetically I really REALLY wanted to stop the active backup task, one 
might suppose I could have hypothetically done it in a panic by screaming 
STAAAAHHHHPPP!! several times loudly and killing the session from the server 
end and shutting down dsmcad on the data mover vm, which is also my plug-in 
server.  But hypothetically there should be something I could do instead from 
the plug-in, right?
