[Catalyst] Killing the standalone perl server programatically

I'm developing a desktop application using Catalyst and the brand new 
Titanium framework (http://www.appcelerator.com/).

I need to start/stop the standalone server programatically. Starting is 
easy, but stopping the server (and its forks) again is tricky. I'd like 
a solution without keeping track of the PID and explicitely kill it from 
outside. I want to have something like


that calls something in the controller to shut down. The obvious thing


does not work. Any ideas how to do this?
