I know probably everyone else knows this already but i just learned
that i can kill a process by using it's name without needing to find
it's PID!  

Yeah, I know that.

But this is not an option here. pkill will, by default, search for
processes of every user. Imagine that there are two users on the
system, and one of them has LibreOffice already running. If you do
pkill soffice.bin, it might hit another user and interrupt his work
(unlikely, as you probably won't have sufficient permissions).

Or imagine that you have libreoffice running in background in headless
mode, used to convert documents in large batches. If you issue pkill,
you will interrupt it's work.

In both these cases you won't need quickstarter/preloader script, as LO
will already be in memory (so there is no benefit in preloading it).
But still, killing process by name is not an option here. We need to
stop one particular instance of LO that we have started only to put it
in memory.
