I have no great opinion on which side of GD this happens. Obviously it
would be nice if the perl-visible things were still valid even during
GD, but if some implementation reason makes that a lot harder to
implement, then I could live with perl documenting "Signal handlers may
not apply during GD", as already GD is a weird time.
