  Hmm ... interesting.  But it's predicated on similar usage to fully work.
Yours [1] and mine [2] take different approaches to the implementation.  You
have explicit functions to add and remove sets, whereas I took a more
value-meta-table approach to it.


	x = sigset.fill()
	if sigset.ismember(x,SIGWINCH) then ... end


	-- signal.set(true) returns a full set, any addtional signals listed
	-- will remove those signals from the list.
	-- signal.set(false) returns an empty set, any addtional signals
	-- listed will add those signals to the list.

	x = signal.set(true,'segfault','illegal')

	if x['windowchange'] then ... end

  -spc (Yeah, I'm not sure yet either)
