How to stop fetchmail(1)

The manpage shows ``fetchmail --quit'' as the way to kill the
fetchmail daemon but it doesn't state *how* it kills it. Does it
just kill the daemon unconditionally or, and I suspect this is the
case, if fetchmail is currently getting mail does it wait until
the daemon goes back to the idle state before killing it?
