Yup... I guess I was a little bit over-enthusiastic about getting the
thing solved so I read way way too much into the termination-in-handler
section, ignoring all the other warnings. I just love making a total
fool out of myself in public, duh :)
Oh well, back to plan B, whatever that is. For python users, I just added
methods for checking pending signals and exiting cleanly, C/C++ API users
already had those available. There are some complications with that but
it'll get the job done.
