Subject Re: clean_child_exit, just_die and exit

We (and third party modules) call lots of stuff in clean_child_exit that is not safe to
call from a signal handler. Dean has pointed this out many times. We need to eliminate
this particular architectural flaw in 2.0.

BTW, Jeff is working on a patch to 1.3 that will help out some though I do not know all
the details.
