    More precisely we now have a choice. Working unsafe signals, or not working safe signals.

    What I mean by this is that we can either choose to allow signals to interrupt long atomic calls (eg an attempt to connect to a database with DBI) but suffer potential core dumps, or else we can choose safety but not be able to use alarms to get timeouts to work.
