Here is another one:
- Allow Administrators to also "kill" all top level Cygwin processes. (Pierre Humblet)

> - Implement sighold.  (Christopher Faylor)

I notice that sighold's argument sig is an integer, while that of sigpause
is a mask (in Cygwin & BSD), which makes sigpause identical to sigsuspend. 

sighold and sigpause are supposed to work together, see "Application Usage" in 
So now that sighold is present it would make sense to adopt the Posix 
definition for sigpause (there is no sighold in BSD).
