Jon Trowbridge <jon@trowbridge.org> just gave an interesting
(non-original, he admits) suggestion regarding this. He suggested
that we create a custom signal handler that does the following things:

   - unregisters itself as the signal handler!
   - prints a warning to the user "Attempting cleanup; hit Cntrl-C
     again to immediately abort()."
   - begins doing cleanup-ish things.

Sounds kinda nifty to me (which is *not* to say, "I plan to begin
implementing this now").
