Not really.  I was primarily reacting to having "error" and
"error-all", that share the same prefix.  Changing "-all" suffix to
"-stop" does not make all that difference to me.  But in any case,
as long as other reviewers are happy with it, it is OK by me, too.

I am not making any argument and in no way against the chosen
behaviour.  That "intention here" that was revealed after two
iterations is something we would want to see as the reasoning
behind the choice of the final behaviour recorded somewhere,
and now I drew it out of you, I achieved what I set out to do
initially ;-)

As a potential filter writer, I would probably feel it the easiest
to handle if there is no signal involved.  My job would be to read
from the command pipe, react to it, and when the command pipe gives
me EOF, I am expected to exit myself.  That would be simple enough.

I would expect them to peek at contrib/, but do you seriously expect
people to comb through t/ directory?
