I completely agree. Signals should be avoided if possible - there are countless race conditions and apparentlky even buggy glibc functions (!) associated with them. To me signals have always seemed like a remnant from the past when they were used to supplement a lacking API. If anything the API should evolve to decrease the need for signals even further.
For comparison the Win32 API doesn't support signals.
