Imho this patch is a very good idea. I'm just wondering if this can
somehow be managed by the daemon itself. I don't really like the idea of
having plugins handling any signals. I currently have a lot of other
stuff on my mind, so I won't come up with any good ideas right now...
any ideas are welcome ;-)
