Would mapping the old values to the new ones in the trampoline code be
an acceptable compromise?
Should I rename the constants so that programs using them would fail
to compile, and therefore be noticed and, hopefully, updated to the
more portable SA_SIGINFO interface?
Would it still be ok to introduce POSIX sigcodes where 0 was used before?
