Much easier then to install a signal handler the usual way? This signal 
handler can in turn use standard asynchronous exceptions to send signals 
on to the appropriate forkIOed threads... Of course this is a different 
mechanism, but it feels much more idiomatic vis a vis haskell 
concurrency and the GHC runtime.
