I think I would be more comfortable with deferring signals around a fork.
It seems like that is the right way to handle this.  Then the parent would
not disappear mysteriously and there would be no need to have the child
wait for the parent.  Your exceptions.cc change would still be required,

There currently is no way to stop signals from being delivered but it
is trivial to add something.

Wouldn't that solve this problem?
