There are at least two major models of signal handling from what I 
remember (BSD and Sys V) now Posix have added another layer.  When 
investigating things for NeTraMet Project a while back I decided to 
follow POSIX since most systems offer some form of POSIX compatibility 

Again with the NeTraMet project I developed a configuation parser which 
set default configurations for NeTraMet and NeMaC. With NeMaC there 
were several functions that you could tie to signals and my 
configuration file allowed you to say things like:

Signal USR1 reload_ruleset.
Signal USR2 print_status.
Signal INT stop_leave_rules_running
Signal TERM stop_kill_ruleset
