Message ID:
After some private heated (from my side) and reasoned (from Sarathy's
side) discussion :-) I think we should not try to solve the syntactic
backward- and forward-compatibility for this feature for Perl 5.8.1.

Instead, let us go for an environment variable: $ENV{PERL_SIGNALS},
and "unsafe" will enable the pre-5.8.0 behaviour.

Anybody proposing some other variable name or syntax better be called
Sarathy or I am very likely ignore the suggestion :-)

No per-signal syntax, either.  See previous paragraph.
