I have an unlocked phone and I'd like to use Cydia's Activator to setup an easy way to remove apps from memory via a script. Similar to how activator send libactivator.system.homebutton simulates pressing the homebutton, this would simulate double clicking the home button and swiping an app away.

To be clear, I'm totally fine with scripting this on the command line.

"Quit App for Activator" by Seva Safris and "SmartClose" by Ryan Petrich are both good ones. They work with iOS 7, not sure about iOS 8.
