Well. There is one in the form of "make signal handlers thread-safe or
defer non-threadsafe handlers".
But before we're committed down that path, I think we need someone with
really good knowledge in those signal handlers to comment on wether this
sounsd reasonable at all, or if it iwll be too much work. I know I don't
have that knowledge, and from what I read we've had nobody speak up yet.

Basically, we want signal handlers to run on a separate thread from the
main processing.
