Reason against pidof / killall?


i'm a bit confused about reason why there is no pidof or killall call in
OpenBSD. I written those little 2-liners to solve this task:

# cat /sbin/pidof
ps axc -o pid,command | awk "/`echo $1`/ {print \$1}"

# cat /sbin/killall
kill `/sbin/pidof $1`

I'm sure that I'm not the first person who thought about this. 

My Point is: is there an special reoson why killall and pidof arent
included in OpenBSD?
