It's part of the draft, that's reason enough to put it in, IMO.

I like it.

If anyone feels like it, the sig2name/name2sig could be made more complex to
allow for arbitrary signal passing from a given system to a remote system of
the same kind, which could be useful.

I'm thinking of the draft text in section 4.10 of the connection protocol;

Additional signal names MAY be sent in the format "sig-name at xyz", where
`sig-name' and `xyz' may be anything a particular implementor wants (except
the `@' sign).  However, it is suggested that if a `configure' script is
used, the non-standard signal names it finds be encoded as
"SIG at xyz.config.guess" where `SIG' is the signal name without the "SIG"
prefix, and `xyz' be the host type, as determined by `config.guess'.

So much mail, so not enough time.
