I do care because my embedded perl code does some resource cleanup on 
shutdown that should be done even when debugging ;-) And CTRL-C aka 
SIGINT is the typical way of shutting down in debug mode. Killing with 
SIGTERM isn't as easy as typing CTRL-C ...

That's right and that's why I think SIGINT should be handled specially 
in debugging mode, not in daemon mode.
