Signals are a feature of the operating system or (as in the case of
Cygwin) of an ambitious run-time library. Windows does not support
the same signals as Unix and the signals that it does support have
different semantics. The MS run-time library that Mingw uses doesn't
add much to that, I believe. In that context SIGUSR1/SIGUSR2 don't
make much sense.
