What about SIGWINCH? Without that, your programs will be extremely antisocial.
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but as someone who uses terminals
extensively, *please* use curses! Or at least termcap, which is easier to
interface to, but is much more irritating to use. But either way, you'll
still need --- somehow --- to trap SIGWINCH...
