Subject: Status request signallling to children or MPI nodes.

Solar,

Is there a reason you picked SIGUSR2 for fork mode's signalling to 
children instead of SIGUSR1, that the MPI code has used for ages for the 
same thing? I have a patch that changes your code to use SIGUSR1 and 
drops the specific MPI code but I thought you might have had a good 
reason for not doing that?

The main reason I want this is I'm writing a patch that makes John 
reload/process .pot file etc. upon receiving a signal and I realized 
we're out of them :-(
