There was a long discussion last year about using a signal handler.
The problem is getting the signal handler to interact with multiple
threads, there was opposition to a single global handler. Solving
that probably involves passing a svn_context_t parameter through the
client and wc libraries.

On Unix a SIGKILL will leave locks whatever we do, or are you
suggesting that the *next* command should run cleanup automatically?
